Ex-WBC champ Figueroa facing DWI charge

Boxing

Former WBC junior featherweight champion Brandon Figueroa was arrested Sunday for allegedly driving while intoxicated, jail records in Hidalgo County, Texas, show.

Tests showed the 25-year-old Figueroa’s blood alcohol content was greater than .15, nearly double the state limit of .08.

The Weslaco, Texas, native was released on a $1,000 personal recognizance bond. According to Hidalgo County court records, Figueroa’s next court date has yet to be set.

Figueroa (23-1, 18 KO) last fought in July, when he knocked out Carlos Castro in the sixth round in San Antonio. It was his first fight since losing his WBC belt to Stephen Fulton in a majority decision last November.
