Hugo Corro : biography

November 5, 1953 - June 15, 2007

Hugo Pastor Corro (November 5, 1953 – June 15, 2007), better known plainly as Hugo Corro, was a former boxer from Argentina who was world Middleweight champion.

Corro beat Rodrigo Valdez for the world Middleweight title, and he would beat Valdez in a rematch. Valdez had succeeded Carlos Monzón as world champion. Since Monzon had beaten Valdez twice also during his period as champion, the comparisons between Corro and Monzon became inevitable. The fact that Corro went to Europe to defend his title was another common trait he shared with Monzon. Corro's championship reign would ultimately prove to be inferior to Monzon's however, as Corro defended his title successfully only twice, and Monzon retained the crown for a then record of fourteen times.
