Boxing World Says Goodbye to Boom Boom Markus Beyer and David Defiagbon

By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent

Two known veteran boxers have passed, one of them a distinguished world champion.



Breman, Germany (December 6th, 2018)–Former World Boxing Council Super Middleweight champion Markus ‘Boom Boom’ Beyer, 45, hailed from Bremen, Germany, and had a professional record of 35-3-1 with 13 knockouts. Beyer, a southpaw, fought between 1996 and 2008, and figured into 17 WBC world and international title bouts, finishing his career with an eight round decision win over Murad Mukhmadov in Munich in March 2008. Beyer was 39-4 as an amateur and won the European Junior Flyweight amateur championship in Gdansk, Poland in 1988.



Heavyweight David ‘The Dream’ Defiagbon, hailed from Sapele, Nigeria, and later resided in Halifax, Canada, and a professional record of 21-2 with 12 knockouts between 1996 and 2005. Defiagbon won the World Boxing Association Fedecentro Heavyweight title with a fifth-round stoppage of Ron Guerrero in Devonshire, United Kingdom in June 2004. After losing a 10 round split decision to future WBC World Heavyweight champion Oleg Maskaev, and getting stopped in the third round by former World Boxing Council World Cruiserweight champion Juan Carlos Gomez, Defiagbon retired. Defiagbon represented Nigeria in the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, Spain, as a light middleweight, but was eliminated in the first round. He returned to the Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1996, winning a silver medal as a heavyweight, representing Canada.
