Jude Moore, a promising two-time British national amateur champion, was found dead on Friday. He was 19 years old.
Moore’s family confirmed the death of the young fighter who was believed to be a potential world champion. His tragic death comes shortly after his impressive knockout victory over the Polish national champion in his first senior fight, the BBC reported.
Moore’s trainer, Craig Turner, described his fallen fighter as an “immaculate” talent the likes of which his native Bristol had never seen before, certainly at that age.
“There’s nothing that any of us really did to develop that talent. It was just his flair, his uniqueness, his personality,” Turner said.
“There was only one, there could only ever be one and it’s just a shame that we will never see him fulfill his potential.”
