The Gifted One Passes Onward – Rest in Peace To Kirkland Laing 📰

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.
