Ex-pro boxer Exum Speight

Ex-pro boxer Exum Speight, perhaps best known for losing a 1996 bout with current heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, recently worked as a security guard at a Venice Beach marijuana clinic until his arrest for the 1987 murder of his boxing manager.

Boxing manager Douglas Stumler was beaten and killed inside his West L.A. apartment nearly three decades ago. Speight was initially interviewed after the slaying, but the connections were circumstantial, Jackson told The Times. It wasn’t until 2012, he said, that LAPD cold case detectives got a hit: DNA collected from Stumler’s body matched Speight. (Exum on the left, Douglas on the right in striped shirt).
