PLAYERS: Arnaldo Mesa
Cuban authorities say Olympic silver-medalist boxer Arnaldo Mesa has died. He was 46. Government-run sports website Jit.cu says Mesa died Monday in the eastern city of Holguin, several days after he was hospitalized for a stroke. Mesa, a southpaw, was born Dec. 6, 1966, in the eastern province of Santiago. In 1996 he was runner-up in the bantamweight class at the Olympic Games in Atlanta. He won a gold medal at the Panamerican Games in 1991, in Havana, and again four years later in Mar del Plata, Argentina. His funeral is planned for Wednesday.
