According to a report from boxing champ Tyson Fury, his cousin died from his injuries after being stabbed in the neck in the United Kingdom this past weekend.

This needs to stop 🛑 Asap, UK 🇬🇧 government needs to bring higher sentencing for knife crime, its a pandemic & you dont know how bad it is until its 1 of your own!” Fury continued saying, “Life is very precious & it can be taken away very quick enjoy every moment🙏RIP RICO BURTON 🙏 may the lord god grant you a good place in heaven. see you soon.”
