Yucatecan professional boxer Iván “Sonrics” Ramírez proclaimed himself the new light flyweight champion endorsed by the Federation of Boxing Commissions (Fecombox) on Saturday June 15, when he overwhelmingly defeated Ulises “Condorito” Martín by unanimous decision.
But sadly, Ramírez, who was indeed a real promise for Yucatan boxing, was found dead on the morning of Thursday July 4th, inside his house located on the corner of Calle 69 with Circuito Colonias, near the Fuente Maya, where the 23-year-old champion committed suicide.
The family is confused and hurt, because they do not understand why the young man decided to end his life that way, as he had just achieved the Fecombox light flyweight championship, a title he was scheduled to defend in Brazil later this year.
It was his mother who found him dead, since it seemed strange to her that he did not get up early to go jogging, as he used to do everyday, so she went to his room and found her son dead.
The State Attorney General’s Office is in charge of the routine procedures.
