Fernando Beltran, President of Zanfer Promotions: “This hurts a lot. We knew that “Frankie” Leal was a good guy, a great fighter, a warrior inside and outside the ring. As a company, we we took responsibility and did everything humanly possible to try to save his life, and only now we join in the sorrow that overwhelms his family, his boxing family, and try to help in whatever it takes.
“It hurts what happened, our prayers and solidarity. We knew that Leal was a good young man who liked living well, based on his efforts, unfortunately, this has happened and we couldn’t do more to support the decisions of his family to safeguard his integrity, and with the support that we provide, we will try our best to make them feel supported in this difficult time.”
