The World Boxing Council, its President Mauricio Sulaimán. and all members of the boxing family, join together to pray for her Family and so many friends in this time of grief.

Such a short life, so much achieved and yet the forever unfulfilled promise of much more to come.

May the champ, rest in peace. We’ll never forget you Angelique. You are now with the Angels.
