Lennox’s statement on the death of Corrie Sanders

September 24, 2012
As are all, I am still stunned by the tragic death of my friend Corrie Sanders.  He was tremendous fighter inside the ring and a great man outside of it. The world’s boxing fraternity has lost a brother, an ally, and a voice in South Africa.

His legacy will continue to be a shining example for all, of what can be achieved through hard work, sacrifice and determination. My deepest sympathies and prayers go out to his family during this very difficult time.

Rest in peace brother.  You will be missed.

-Lennox Lewis
