The World Boxing Council mourns the passing of Queeda Evelyn Walker, wife of our dear friend and vice president Rex Walker.
Queeda passed away at the age of 87 after a long and characteristically brave battle with Parkinson’s disease.
She married Rex Ross Walker on June 11, 1955, being together for more than 65 years, forming one of the most solid and exemplary couples in the boxing family.
The entire WBC family and its President Mauricio Sulaimán Saldivar, send Rex and his family, our deepest condolences.
Rest in peace.
