Born 98 years ago in Tlaxcala. He was one of five children. Lupe, as his closest friends called him, was exemplary in everything he undertook and greatly respected for this. He is survived by his four daughters Mary, Rosalinda, Lupita and Paty, in addition to three sons Jorge, Lalo and Javier, to whom the World Boxing Council and its President Mauricio Sulaiman send their deepest condolences.
Lupe began his career in boxing as an amateur boxer back in the 40s of the last century; Later, as a coach, he became associated with another legendary manager, Guadalupe Sánchez.
Lupe Serrano soon became a leading figure in his profession and shaped world champions such as Israel Vázquez and Amado “Panterita” Urzúa, on their way up to the heights of glory.
About 20 years ago, Carlos Cuadras’s father asked Lupe Serrano to guide his son, to teach him and to direct his future. Obviously this was not possible because of the age of the beloved manager. But in his heyday, Lupe made and managed dozens of first-line fighters. Mauro Vázquez, from Tlaxcala was one of those he esteemed the most and whom he directed masterfully.
What a man and what a life!
Farewell Don Lupe.
