Moises Fuentes passes

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Sad to report the passing of former world champion Moises Fuentes at the age of 37. Fuentes never recovered from a brain injury suffered in his KO loss against unbeaten “General” David Cuellar in October 2021. He held the WBO minimumweight world championship and WBO interim light flyweight championship, and compiled a career record of 25-7-1 with 14 KOs. R.I.P.

  • Boxing is really rather insane in its barbarity. Most sports at an adult professional level represent our primitive nature, it’s true, but it’s nonetheless pretty wild to witness in this manner. I’m not trying to input a negative or positive reading of the sport, simply an honest objective observational commentary. I’m still a fan, but I’d be lying if I didn’t recognize the base facts here.

  • He never give upAlways throwing punches very awkward fighter to fight rest in peace Moises

  • VERY SAD something needs to be done to prevent this from ever happening Again.
