It is a moment of grief for the local boxing community with the passing away of Ricardo Canlas early this morning (Sunday), following a boxing event in Naga City on Saturday evening where he judged.
According to accounts from colleagues, Kuya Ric believed to have suffered from a heart attack at dawn and his roommate, boxing referee Noel Haduca, rushed him to a local hospital where he eventually expired.
Kuya Ric was a fixture in the Luzon boxing community and was also a judge in several international fights including Manny Pacquiao’s fight against Fahsang 3K Battery in the “Yanig sa Taguig” held in November of 2004. He judged his last fight Saturday evening.
Our condolence to his family. You will surely be missed Kuya Ric.
