Default News circulating that Kirkland Laing passed away on Thursday.

Just heard this on the boxing grapevine though can't find anything on the net. Some of the exboxers associations are reporting it. Can't believe there's been no official news. RIP Kirkland Laing!

If that's true then it's a shame. So many bizarre tales circulating about Laing, hope he got to have a puff of his preferred smoke before he passed

Talented fighter. Erratic performer. No one can take the solid victory over Duran off of him. Duran wasn't at his best but Laing still put it together. He has been remembered for that night for years as it is, and will continue to be I'm sure.

Hopefully it is another 'false alarm'.

Yes. I was in two minds about p̣sting this. I was worried in case it was incorrect news but I was also worried that he's been passed 3 days now and it's just slipped under the radar, nobody remembering him.
It was first reported by the Brighton ex boxers, then the London ex boxers and the Sunderland ex boxers have just posted it on facebook.

Oh, well, if not let's just remember him. Two fun fights with Colin Jones as well.

R.I.P. if true,Kirkland.


A shame that his natural flair was n't matched by his self discipline. We'd have been talking world champ,for sure,if that had been the case.
