Tributes are coming quickly in the wake of the tragic passing of Abodunrin "Bo" Akinyanju. BATB has learned that there will be a number of tributes planned for the Saturday, August 25th boxing card at the Washington Convention Center. Representatives for Keystone Boxing say they will have something in place by that time. Akinyanju's last bout was on a Keystone Boxing card on March 10 at the Convention Center.
DC welterweight Dusty Harrison, who is headlining the card, says he will donate his entire purse to Akinyanju's family. Also, representatives for Seth Mitchell send their condolences. Many tributes have come via Facebook and other social media.
As soon as we get word on arrangements, we will certainly pass them along.
