ABQ pro boxer arrested in Nevada for sex assault


Former Albuquerque professional boxer Archie Ray Marquez is facing charges after allegedly sexually assaulting and strangling his girlfriend in Henderson, Nevada.

KOB has chosen not to name the woman Marquez allegedly assaulted in Nevada to protect her privacy.

It’s not Marquez’s first fight with the law. He has a history in the New Mexico court system. According to court documents, Marquez’s Albuquerque girlfriend called 911 this summer claiming Marquez pointed a gun at her head. She later changed her story when interviewed by officers.

KOB discovered Marquez violated his probation on March 21, 2015. A judge declared him a danger to the community and ordered him to wear a GPS device. He was ordered not to possess firearms, consume alcohol or drugs, contact his girlfriend, and to not leave the state of New Mexico.

Marquez tampered with his device and didn’t report to his metro probation officer. He got to Clark County, Nevada, with his Albuquerque girlfriend and allegedly assaulted her there.

Since 2010, Marquez has been charged with unlawfully touching a household member, aggravated battery against a household member, swearing at police officers, false imprisonment, child abuse, assault, disorderly conduct, interfering with communications and DWI. All of these charges were dismissed through a plea deal or lack of evidence.  

He allegedly beat his ex-wife, Jamie Marquez, which prompted their divorce in 2011.  Jamie told KOB that her former spouse beat her regularly.

“He put a hole in my head,” Jamie Marquez said. “He just used to beat me in front of the kids. He always sexually abused me mentally and physically.”

Jamie told KOB that Marquez’s most recent girlfriend called her informing her of the assault in Nevada.

"You know I'm glad she and her children are OK,” Jamie Marquez said. “[I’m glad] he didn't take her life."

Jamie Marquez and Archie Ray have three children together. According to court records, Marquez’s parents petitioned to have custody. Jamie attempted to gain custody but was unable to.

“I’m terrified,” Jamie Marquez said. “I just want my kids home."

Marquez was on the Bernalillo County Metro probation system, not the State of New Mexico’s Department of Corrections probation and parole database.

Metro probation was notified that his tracking device was tampered with this September. Metro ordered Marquez to check in with his probation officer—but he didn’t.

Marquez has a court hearing in Clark County, Nevada on Tuesday.

It is unclear if Marquez still fights professionally, but his ex-wife says he no longer competes.
