No details on what has caused it, but some hours ago it started circulating, and now enough outlets have reported it, and tributes sent out from fighters who would likely know, that it seems a bit like when Steward passed. May he swim forever without getting wet.

R.I.P Brother Naazim one of the last great philly boxing coaches. A great mentor and father figure to many of the youth who happened to walk through the doors of his gym.

Traditionally the unsung heroes of the urban hoods were the neighbourhood boxing coaches who guided many youngsters away from being consumed by the streets and live a productive life Brother Naazim was was one of those unsung heroes. Feel really sad.

He was a big presence in boxing.

Really surprised at his age being reported, wouldn't be surprised if that was incorrect.

Anyone got that photo of the press conference where he in inexplicably laid down on the stage?
