The best boxer at the Olympics in 1976, Howard Davis Jr, died New Year's Day in Florida, where he lived.

The 59-year-old ex-boxer died from lung cancer, which came as a shock to the family, since Davis had never smoked, writes the Associated Press.

According to the boxer's wife, Karla Guadamuz-Davis, Davis was diagnosed with lung cancer in February 2015.

Howard Davis was part of America's strongest Olympic team in boxing ever since also the brothers Leon and Michael Spinks, Leo Randolph and Sugar Ray Leonard participated at the Games in Montreal. All five boxers won gold. In addition, the United States also won a silver and a bronze medal in Montreal.

For Howard Davis, who won gold in the lightweight, there was also a bonus, as he also was elected to the tournament's 'most outstanding boxer'.

As a professional Davis lost all three times boxing for a World Championship title: In 1980, 1984 and 1988.

After he stopped his career in 1996, Howard Davis became a coach, and he used much time mixing martial art into the boxing technique.
