Ex-contender for the title of world champion under version WBO in a light heavyweight Anthony Yard said that the coronavirus has claimed the life of his father. According to the former contender Sergei Kovalev, from his relative before that there were no health problems.
“I’m a very private person and still am in a state of shock, but perhaps it will convince other people to stay at home. Yesterday, my dad died due to this virus. He was right, he didn’t have any health problems.
The more people will go out and contact each other, the longer insulation. Because of this, the disease will spread more actively”, – said the Yard in the social networks.
The boxer’s promoter Frank Warren also commented on the personal tragedy of his ward.
“I, along with all staff Queensberry Promotions wish to Express my sincere condolences to Anthony’s Yard and his family in connection with the death of his father. Coronavirus – a problem affecting all of us, but that doesn’t make the loss of the individual less tragic.
We hope the fans of Anthony will listen to his earnest appeal, and seriously accept the recommendation of the government. Thus we can try to minimize the suffering of others,” wrote Warren in social networks.
