The World Boxing Association (WBA) mourns the passing of manager and coach Willie Savannah. Several media and journalists reported on Savannah’s departure at the age of 85 after a life dedicated to boxing and youth development.

He was in charge of the Savannah Boxing Gym in Houston, where he mentored several professional fighters, especially Juan “Baby Bull” Diaz, besides showing the path of boxing to young people and influencing their lives in a positive way.

The WBA regrets the departure of such an important man for the sport and sends words of condolence to his family and friends. May he rest in peace.
