Alfredo Layne (October 9, 1959 - June 25, 1999) was a Panamanian professional boxer. Layne is notable for having won the WBA World super featherweight title. Layne, who began fighting professionally in 1981, fought in his first world title fight on May 24, 1986 as he travelled to San Juan to challenge the Puerto Rican world champion Wilfredo Gomez. Layne won the fight with a ninth round technical knockout to become the new WBA champion. Layne's title reign was ended later in the year when he was beaten by Brian Mitchell in the first defence of his belt. Layne lost six out of his next seven fights, including a loss to Rafael Williams in December 1988, his final professional contest.[1] Layne was shot dead in June 1999, aged 39.[2]
