Darren Sutherland Passes Away

Tributes have been remunerated to Irish Olympic boxer Darren Sutherland, who was found dead in his London flat. The 27-year-old, won bronze medal last year in Beijing. Mr Maloney was taken to hospital after verdict the body and it was later on confirmed he had just suffered a heart attack. However, there is a option Maloney had the heart attack last week, and not after making the grim finding in the flat. Former world champion Barry McGuigan told that it is an complete tragedy. I would explain that Darren as a extraordinary talent. I consider he would have become a world champion in the specialized ranks one day.

Michael Carruth, who won welterweight gold for Ireland at the 1992 Olympics, said that he had the authority, he had the charisma, everything that goes into making a top-class pro, he had the ingredient there. Pat Hickey, President of the Olympic Council of Ireland, said that Sutherland was a superb person with a wonderful personality. His Olympic generation enjoyed his unmanageable good humour and his keen interest in all of the various sports that Ireland participated in. Britain's Olympic middleweight champion James DeGale, who beat Sutherland in Beijing, said that he was shocked at the Irishman's death. I just might not consider it; my heart went to the floor when I heard.

I just do not know what to say apart from he was a brilliant boxer, in fact an excellent fighter. Ireland has lost a sportsman of wonderful capability, a clever and popular man with a prospect of real potential. Dominic O'Rourke, president of the Irish Amateur Boxing Association, said that Sutherland's death had shocked the boxers with whom he came through the domestic ranks.

He was such a admired young boxer within the association. Sutherland had taught with Brendan Ingle in Sheffield while in his adolescence but gave up the sport. After his success in Beijing, the fighter bowed professional and joined the Maloney camp, captivating his first fight in Dublin last December by knockout.
