Boxer Lee Noble has died at the age of 33 following a battle with terminal cancer.
Noble was diagnosed with leukaemia in 2014 and received a terminal brain cancer diagnosis in 2019.
The Briton’s last fight came in 2014 as Noble defeated Kiril Psonko to stretch his winning run to five bouts.
He passed away in the company of friends and family in Sheffield, The Sun reported on Sunday.
Noble took on Billy Joe Saunders, Martin Murray and John Ryder during his career, and promoter Eddie Hearn was among those to pay tribute on Sunday.
“Very saddened to hear of the passing of Lee Noble,” Hearn tweeted.
“Lee fought his illness so bravely for many Years and my thoughts and everyone at Matchroom are with him and his family.
“At peace now.”
