The NABF mourns the paasing of Omar Henry, 26, 4X Texas GG winner and still Undefeated.
Boxer Omar Henry craved the spotlight and hoped one day to become the undisputed super welterweight champion.
Sadly, though, Henry only became a star in death, when he died at 25 Friday in a Chicago hospitalfollowing a short fight with gall bladder cancer.
Henry, who was 12-0-1, was supposed to fight on Showtime on Nov. 16. But he didn’t feel well a few days before the fight, went to see his doctor and was diagnosed with Stage 4 gall bladder cancer.
He posted a series of heart-wrenching messages on his Facebook fan page in which he pleaded for prayers and support. Perhaps the most tragic was his Jan. 9 post, when he said he hoped to live to celebrate his 26th birthday on Feb. 8.
