Who was Francisco Guilledo?

Francisco Guilledo, more commonly known as Pancho Villa, was a Filipino professional boxer. Villa, who stood only 5 feet and 1 inch tall and never weighed more than 114 pounds, rose from obscurity to win the World Flyweight Championship in 1923, earning acclaim in some quarters as "the greatest Asian fighter in boxing history." He was never knocked out in his entire boxing career, which ended with his sudden death at the age of 23 from complications following a tooth extraction.
