Battle of life fought for 9 days
Phanfeet fought the battle of life for 9 days before saying goodbye to the world. Announcing his retirement on Facebook, Anthony Durand said that I know that I am not responsible for whatever happened, but I cannot believe that this is a threat and at some point you will accept it. I faced him for 5 rounds and it was one of my last shots. So obviously I feel responsible and no one can take it out of my mind. I am in deep shock at this time. He further said that until his family does not refuse, I will continue to help his mother, wife and daughter financially.
