A BOXER arrested for allegedly murdering his wife hanged himself in a police cell yesterday.

Ex-lightweight champ Edwin Valero – famed for winning all 27 of his fights by knockouts – used his own jogging bottoms as a rope.

Valero, 28, was said to have admitted stabbing his wife in their native Venezuela.

He was known as El Dinamita for explosive punching and had his national flag tattooed on his chest.
