Boxer Danny Gonzalez Shot And Killed During Labor Day Picnic

Danny Gonzalez has died after being shot.

Reports have surfaced with the news that Gonzalez was shot and killed during a family Labor Day picnic. Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather had big hopes for Gonzalez, signing him to Mayweather Promotions back in 2016. At the time, Gonzalez was only 18 years old.

The Instagram account of Latin Box Sports had the following to say on Gonzalez’s death.

“We are very sad to report the tragic death of boxer Danny Gonzalez who was shot and killed during a Labor Day picnic. We send our deepest condolences and prayers to the Gonzalez family at this time.”

WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman commented on the killing of Gonzalez.

“We are very sad to report the tragic death of boxer and top prospect, Danny González. We send our deepest condolences and prayers to the Gonzalez family at this hard time. May Danny rest in eternal peace.”

This is the second time in the span of four days that fight fans have seen the news that a boxer was gunned down. Last Thursday, September 4, it was revealed that 24-year-old boxer Jose ‘Gallito’ Quirino was shot and killed in Tijuana, Mexico. He was the son of former WBO Super-Flyweight Champion Jose ‘Gallo’ Quirino.
