Darius Watson mourned

By Francisco Salazar

It is with a sad heart that Fightnews.com reports on the unfortunate and unexpected passing of former cruiserweight prospect Darius Watson of Los Angeles. Watson was running on the beach on Sunday evening when he suffered an apparent heart attack. He was rushed to a local hospital, where he passed away on Monday morning. Watson finished with a professional record of seven victories (with three knockouts) to go with one defeat. One of Watson’s career highlights was a 12 second knockout victory over Robert Green in January of 2002. The one defeat was in his last fight in May of 2006, a disputed split decision loss to Richard Paige. Watson was a physical education teacher at a junior high school in South Los Angeles. Watson stopped boxing after being diagnosed with a heart condition. He recently was working as a second in corners of fighters from a local gym. Fightnews.com sends their heartfelt condolences to Watson’s family and friends.
