The World Boxing Association (WBA) and the entire boxing family is grieving over the sad news of the passing of Filipino Kenneth Egano reported in the world media on Wednesday.
Egano, a 22-year-old prospect, fought last May 6 in Imus City and won by decision over Jason Facularin. However, he collapsed in his corner as the decision was being announced and was transported to a local hospital, where he was placed in an induced coma.
The uncertainty of the last few days ended with the terrible news of his death. Manny Pacquiao and his entire team were taking care of the medical expenses and everything related to the health of Egano, who was a good bantamweight fighter.
The WBA sends its condolences to Egano’s family and all the people around him, as well as the Filipino boxing in general who have experienced this very sad moment. May you rest in peace, Kenneth.
