A 24-year-old Mexican boxer has died after being shot in Tijuana.

On Thursday afternoon, it was revealed that Jose “Gallito” Quirino died as a result of the gunfire. He was shot in the Las Torres neighborhood. “Gallito” was the son of former WBO Super-Flyweight Champion Jose ‘Gallo’ Quirino.

Local reports claim that “Gallito” was taken to Clinic 36 of the Mexican Social Security Institute. The report notes that Quirino was denied access due to the lack of affiliation with IMSS.

Quirino had a pro boxing record of 20-3-3. He nabbed nine knockout victories. His last bout was back on February 23, 2019.
