Former World Champion Moises Fuentes Dead Aged 37

WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman has reportedly announced that former world champion Moises Fuentes died early Thursday morning from complications due to a brain injury he suffered over a year ago.

Former World Champion Moises Fuentes Dead Aged 37

In October of 2021, 37-year-old Fuentes faced undefeated puncher David Cuellar in Cancun after a three-year hiatus. Fuentes was knocked out in six rounds, suffering a brutal knockout loss.

Fuentes already had consecutive knockout losses to Daigo Higa and Roman Gonzalez prior to that. Following his most recent loss, Fuentes was transported to a hospital in Quintana Roo on a stretcher and underwent emergency surgery to remove a severe clot in his brain.

Although the surgery saved his life, Fuentes was forever altered and suffered from numerous health problems that adversely affected his quality of life.

In an emotional tribute, this is what Sulaiman had to say: “Thank God, Moises Fuentes is already resting in peace. A warrior who fought to the last breath. Our condolences to his family and friends and our appreciation to his wife for her dedication and dedication with indescribable love during this difficult year of suffering. May he rest in peace.”

Fuentes had eight world championship fights under his belt. In 2011, he defeated Raúl García to win the World Boxing Organisation minimum-weight world title.

In a world title defence, he also defeated Puerto Rican icon Iván Calderón. In 2013, he walked away with the WBO junior flyweight interim title.

In a career spanning 33 professional fights, Fuentes won 25, 14 of them by knockout. He had one draw and seven losses.
