Former professional boxer Barry McGuigan has joined tributes to US boxer Rubin "Hurricane" Carter calling him an "exceptional fighter."
McGuigan, the 1985 World Boxing Association featherweight Champion, also spoke of the "sadness" felt with the passing of Carter saying it was a "sad day for boxing".
"Boxing is the story of struggle," McGuigan said, "If you think about Carter's life he fought against the elements, he always seemed to be pushing against authority [...] so that struggle in itself epitomises the struggle of a fighter [...] working hard to achieve your goal."
"Eventually he got out [of jail] and he had his success which meant he died a free man."
