R.I.P Abodunrin "BIG BO" Akinyanju

Sad news for boxing in our local boxing area. Bo was in a fatal traffic accident on the New Jersey Turnpike today. It was reported that as Bo was returning home from making some deliveries when a tractor-trailer made an illegal U-turn and hit Bo's vehicle head-on.

In honor of "Big Bo", current undefeated welterweight Dusty Hernandez Harrison will donate his entire purse to the family of Akinyanju. Harrison's next fight is August 25, 2012.

Bo was 28 years old. He leaves behind a wife and baby boy who was just born on August 12, 2012.
ProAmFightTalk sends its deepest condolences to the family and friends.
