Again we have received very bad news in boxing, as Venezuelan coach Juan Medina passed away.
Juancito, as he was known, was in the corner of great boxers Carlos ‘Morocho’ Hernández, Betulio González, David Grimán, Ramón Arias, among many others.
Medina was born in Caracas on July 11, 1933. He started in boxing as an amateur fighter, but found his great vocation as a coach.
The World Boxing Council and its President Mauricio Sulaimán send their deepest condolences to Medina family and Juan’s many friends.
Rest in peace!
