Lee Noble

The super-middleweight boxer Lee Noble has passed away at the age of 33 after a long battle with cancer. Eddie Hearn, Kevin Mitchell, Ryan Rhodes, and many others paid tribute to the late Lee Noble.

Noble passed away in the early hours of Sunday morning on March 21, while his friends and family were surrounded him. Lee has been battling cancer since 2014. Family friend Brendan O’Connor revealed that Lee had an infection in his body that weakened him.

However, the middleweight fighter from Barnsley had to leave the ring after being diagnosed with deadly leukemia in 2014. After that, he was attacked by terminal brain cancer in 2019.

Nicknamed ‘Lightning,’ Lee fought 47 matches as a professional. He started his pro boxing career in 2006 and won 20 fights, three of which came by knockout. Many high-profile boxing personnel, including the Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn, sent tribute to Lee Noble.
