Marcelo Dominguez


Marcelo Fabian Dominguez is an Argentine professional boxer. Although he has fought for and held several major titles, Dominguez has the unique distinction of having never fought in the United States as a professional.

Dominguez turned pro in 1991 and was able to land a title shot in only his sixteenth fight, against Anaclet Wamba in 1994 for the WBC Cruiserweight Title. Wamba won a majority decision. Dominguez was able to capture the interim WBC belt the following year though with a TKO win over Akim Tafer. He was able to defend the belt five times, being promoted to full champ along the way, before losing the belt to Juan Carlos Gomez in 1998 via decision. He rematched Gomez in 1999, and again came up short in a decision. In 2001 he was able to land a shot at WBO Cruiserweight Title holder Johnny Nelson, but lost a decision.

Dominguez later moved up to heavyweight and after drifting into obscurity for several years and fighting for fringe titles, Dominguez lined up a shot for the WBO Cruiserweight Interim Title against Enzo Maccarinelli, but was TKO'd.
