Former boxer, AWA wrestler passes away

Scott LeDoux, a boxer in the 70s who turned to pro wrestling in the 80s, passed away today at the age of 62.

LeDoux, a well-known heavyweight who fought such foes as George Foreman, Ken Norton, Larry Holmes, Leon Spink and Mike Weaver, had been suffering from ALS for a number of years.

He started in the AWA as a special referee, which led to an in-ring feud with Larry Zbyszko during the dying days of the promotion, which played out on ESPN.

He later was the head of the Minnesota Combat Sports commission.
