Ex-Professional Boxer Archie Ray Marquez Arrested for Strangling Woman in Nevada

By Mike Sloan Nov 2, 2016
Former professional boxer Archie Ray Marquez has been arrested for a myriad of attacks on his girlfriend, according to a report from New Mexico news station KOB-TV.

Marquez, who originally is from Albuquerque, N.M., has been accused of sexually assaulting and strangling a woman -- either his wife or girlfriend -- on Sunset Road in Henderson, Nev., a city to the southeast of Las Vegas.

According to multiple reports, Marquez has a lengthy history of crime and violence in New Mexico and has a GPS tracking device attached to his ankle and wasn’t allowed to leave the state, but he had tampered with the device before fleeing to southern Nevada. KOB-TV in Albuquerque was the first outlet to reveal that Marquez had been arrested because a woman had called 911 and informed officers that he had a gun pointed at her head. Marquez was ruled a danger to the community and was prohibited from drinking alcohol, taking drugs or having any weapons.

The boxer had been arrested five times over the last two years in Albuquerque, having been accused of abusing children, using profanity toward police and assaulting women.

KOB-TV was able to get in touch with Jamie Marquez, the pugilist’s ex-wife, and she said that this current woman who was assaulted is not alone and that she had spoken with the most recent victim, who allegedly was kidnapped and taken to Henderson.

“He always sexually abused me, mentally and physically,” Jamie Marquez told KOB-TV. “He put a hole in my head. He just used to beat me in front of the kids.”

Marquez (15-2, 9 KOs), who competed at lightweight during his boxing career, earned his biggest pro win in January 2010 when he edged Derrick Campos (20-7) via eight-round unanimous decision. Otherwise, nearly all of his wins have come against foes with either .500 or losing records. The last time he was in the ring was in January 2013, when he beat 6-11-2 Rynell Griffin via decision.
