Film about Tapia to film in Albuquerque
Question of the Day
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Film Office says a movie based on the story of five-time boxing world champion Johnny Tapia will be filmed in his hometown of Albuquerque.
Film office director Nick Maniatis says principal photography will run from late July through August.
Mayor Richard Berry says the setting of Albuquerque brings authenticity to the film, and that the city is honored to host it.
The movie is being produced by local director Eddie Alcazar, who also produced a documentary about the boxing star whose career was cut short after testing positive for cocaine.
Tapia died in 2012 at his Albuquerque home. Investigators said there were no indications of an overdose or alcohol use but said that the 45-year-old former fighter likely developed medical complications from past illegal drug use.
