The World Boxing Council family mourns the passing of José Briegel “Gallito” Quirino, former WBC Intercontinental youth champion.
The Tijuana fighter was attacked with a firearm on Thursday afternoon and after being transferred to a hospital, he unfortunately died.
José Quirino had a professional record of 20 victories, of which nine were by KO in addition to three losses and three draws. The last time he stepped into the ring was on February 23, 2019 at the Tijuana Municipal Auditorium.
The WBC and its President Mauricio Sulaimán, join in prayers with Quirino’s family in these terribly difficult times.
