April 30, 2024

Francis Ngannou, a boxer and UFC star, lost his 15-month-old kid.

As soon as Ngannou’s native Cameroon received word of the awful event, the 37-year-old shared a devastating reaction on social media.

“What’s the purpose of life if what we’re fighting tooth and nail to get away from is what finally hit us the hardest!?” wrote Ngannou.

“Why is life so unfair and merciless?

“Why does life always take what we don’t have? I’m f*****g tired.”

The UFC fighter later posted a tribute for his son saying:- “Too soon to leave but yet he’s gone. My little boy, my mate, my partner Kobe was full of life and joy.

“Now he’s laying without life. I shouted his name over and over but he’s not responding.

“I was my best self next to him and now I have no clue who I am. Life is so unfair to his us where it hurts the most.

“How do you deal with such a thing? How can you live with it? Please help me if you have an idea because I really don’t know what to do and how to deal with this.”

Although the cause of death and other details are still unknown, Ngannou’s message revealed that his kid Kobe passed away on Saturday after being born in January of last year.

Ngannou is receiving support from boxing, mixed martial arts, and other sports fans and celebrities. His former boxing opponent Anthony Joshua posted:-

 “May the memories you shared bring you comfort.”

“I am so sorry to hear of your loss Francis, my prayers are with you and your family at this time,”  former UFC champion Connor McGregor tweeted.
