The veteran Madrid coach Eugenio Martin, who was an amateur boxer and later trained great champions such as Nino Jimenez or Manel Berdonce, among others, died this afternoon in Madrid a victim of COVID-19. He was 83 years old.
Martín was still active and had more than 80 students to whom he taught with great enthusiasm.
He was a very loved trainer by the boxers who started their careers with him. He had been continuously linked to boxing in different facets for more than 70 years. A true fan of boxing.
From ESPABOX our condolences to his family. Rest in peace. Ten bell rings in his honor.
