René Arredondo (born 1961) is a former Mexican professional boxer competing in the welterweight division.

Early life

Arredondo was born June 15, 1961 in Apatzingan, Mexico. He is the younger brother of former World Champion Ricardo Arredondo, and Roberto Arredondo who fought under the name of "Chiba Arredondo" in Japan.


Arredondo turned professional in 1979. He mainly fought in Mexico for first three years, then moved the main battlefield to the United States since 1983, and won the World Boxing Council (WBC) junior welterweight title by beating Lonnie Smith via the fifth round on a technical knockout (TKO) in 1986. He lost the title in his first defense against Tsuyoshi Hamada on a first round KO.

In 1987 he rematched Hamada and regained the title in the sixth round on a TKO. In his first defense, he again lost the title to Roger Mayweather via the sixth round on a TKO. However, Arredondo continued to fight, capturing the North American Boxing Organization (NABO) light middleweight title via the 10th round TKO in Tijuana, Baja California in August 1995, Mexico.

Arredondo retired in 1997. He is currently working in Los Angeles at several boxing gyms, where he has a thriving personal training business and has two children and a wife.
