Al Seeger speaks

By Lee Bates

As reported by Fightnews, Benjamin Flores tragically passed away five days after his fight with Al Seeger on April 30th. Fightnews spoke with Seeger who is understandably emotional and feeling the effects of the passing of Flores. “Besides just being a good man, Benjamin Flores was a true boxing warrior who pursued his dream of becoming a world champion and climbing the economic ladder for his family,” said Seeger. “Benjamin Flores passed away five days after his bout on Thursday, in which he fell into a coma. He leaves behind a son, fiance, mother, father, and brother, among others. We ask that if you can, to please reach into your heart and consider sending a donation to this fund (see below) which has been created for his family by the Texas Real Estate Council. I just pray that the family has the peace they need to deal with this.”

    For 18 years,® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
