Arizmendi was born on March 17, 1913 in Tamaulipas, Mexico. He took up boxing as early as seven or eight by some accounts to counter the effects of Polio which he had suffered from as a young child.Baby used a charging, bruising style, making him a very strong two-fisted fighter. He began boxing professionally at age 13. He took his first championship, the Mexican bantamweight title at only eighteen, a twelve round points decision against Kid Poncho in Mexico City. With victories over flyweight champion Fidel LaBarba, Baby established himself as a worthy contender for the featherweight crown.
