‘The Thomas Hoar Funeral Fund’ created

With the permission of Thomas Hoar’s family, BoxingWales have created and will promote ‘The Thomas Hoar Funeral Fund’.

This is an opportunity for anyone who wants to help, to contribute towards the financial costs of Tom’s funeral.

The news of Tom’s death on Tuesday rocked the Welsh boxing community and his funeral will be on Monday 6th of October at Margam Crematorium at 2:30pm in Port Talbot (SA13 2NR).

Tom won his professional boxing debut on September 22nd 2012 and, after bravely battling the Lymphoma form of cancer for 23 months, passed away on September 23rd 2014. Tom’s death comes almost exactly two years after his final boxing contest and at just 22 years old.

Due to Tom’s kindness, politeness and manner in which he conducted himself, he was one of the most respected and liked figures on the Welsh boxing circuit.

Tom enjoyed a very successful amateur career and it culminated in him winning the Welsh Senior Championships at just 19 years old in March 2012. Tom also won two Welsh Junior Championships and four CYP titles while representing the Croeserw, Gwynfi and Cwmgors Amateur Boxing Clubs.
