  Carlos Monzon: the Argentine world middleweight boxing champion from 1970 to 1977 was considered one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the history of the sport, but he was jailed for 11 years in 1989 for the murder of his third wife, who he threw out of a window during a violent row. Freed on parole, he died in a road accident in 1995.
