Rest in peace to 🇯🇲🇬🇧Kirkland Laing, who passed away yesterday on June 9th, at the age of 66. You may know him best from his historical upset victory over Roberto Duran in 1982 – earning Ring-Magazine accolades for his win. He is often thought of as one of the best British fighters to win a world title, and was certainly one of the better fighters overall who never earned a trinket at the world level.
The day was July 30th, 2016, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York – when two unbeaten fighters took the risk. Former Unified WBA & IBF Super-Bantamweight Titlist 🇬🇧Carl “The Jackal” Frampton (22-0-0, 14KO👊) moved up in weight, to immediately face whirlwind WBA Featherweight Titlist 🇲🇽Leo “El Terremoto” Santa Cruz (32-0-1, 17KO👊) as the headlining event for Showtime.
