Alex Hilton is a Canadian retired boxer from a famous boxing family in Montreal. Son of Dave Hilton, Sr. and a former Canadian middleweight champion, he is also known for his multiple encounters with the law.
Hilton won the vacant Canadian middleweight title at age 18 in December 1983, defeating Ralph Hollett of Halifax. He was stripped of the title by the Canadian Professional Boxing Federation in January 1985, after failing to meet a deadline to defend his championship against Michael Olajide Jr. He announced his retirement in 2004.
Described as the "enfant terrible" of his family in a 1986 Toronto Star article, Hilton was arrested several times on various charges during the mid-1980s. He received a five-year sentence in 1988 for ordering the sexual assault of another inmate while serving time for a separate offense. He later expressed regret for this period in his life, and said in a 2002 interview that he was "trying to live on the straight and narrow". Nevertheless, his legal problems continued in later years.
