Shocking news. Without meaning to be melodramatic, these stories always chill me over a bit; just makes you realise how easily and suddenly life can be snatched away when you least expoect it.

To be honest with you this was coming, Henry was fighting this for a long time, Dr's said it wasn't looking all that good for him, only last week he was confident he was going to make it back into the ring, hopefully he went in peace - they say only the good die young, 25 - that is so very young.

Sad news. Lost his life to gallbladder cancer at the age of 25. Looked at top prospect, shame.

Sometimes think Boxing 606v2 is cursed. Sh1t seems to happen all the time since its inception.

Sounded bad back in December. Brave guy.

I posted an article about him a while back after seeing him for the first time on youtube.

This has shocked me I must say. He looked like a real prospect but he had some ring inactivity which I thought was down to his decision to turn to MMA.

RIP Omar.

Our times are already written for us.

Omar Henry fell one week short of seeing his 26th birthday when passing away on February 1.

His birthday – February 8, which comes this Friday – will now serve as a homecoming, as the one-time promising prospect will be laid to rest in his city of birth in Chicago.

Relatives of Henry have made preparations for his final sendoff to take place this Friday at the Apostolic Church of Chicago
