Darren Sutherland RIP
Posted by Gavin at 11:52 pm
I've just heard the very, very tragic news about Darren Sutherland.
I won't go into the details surrounding his untimely death - to be honest I don't have the stomach for it - but I just wanted to say how much I've enjoyed watching the Dazzler perform in recent years.
He's a man who overcame a serious eye injury to get his career back on track. His highlight, of course, was last summer when he won a Bronze medal at the Beijing Olympics. Things were going well in his pro career - Sutherland had won his first four fights, all via knockout. And then this. So, so sad.
My thoughts are with his family and friends. I commend them for their part in raising a genial gentleman and wish them the best through this devastating time.
