Condolences to the families of the boxers and to Boxing Federation of Mexico09 March 2020
Dear President Contreras,
Dear Mexican boxing community,
On behalf of European Boxing Confederation, as well as personally, I would like to express my deepest condolences to the families of young boxers and their coach, who died in a horrible bus accident in Sonora, Mexico last Sunday. EUBC and the European Boxing Family mourn in solidarity with the Boxing Federation of Mexico, wishing strength and resilience to those who were closest to the victims. We hope that our thoughts and prayers can help their families cope with this tragedy. We are also praying for prompt recovery of those who were injured.
Any young boy or girl, who chooses to become a boxer, trains hard to step into the ring and test his or her character, is worthy of respect and admiration. Good memories of these young boxers must remain alive, providing strength and comfort to those affected.
