    Markus Beyer dead aged 47: Ex-WBC super middleweight champion suffers ‘short’ and ‘serious’ illness in hospital

    German's greatest achievement came when he beat Richie Woodhall in 1999



    Beyer passed away in a Berlin hospital following a "short, severe" illness.

    His former coach Ulli Wegner said: "I cannot describe my feelings with words.

    "Everybody knows that he was my favourite athlete and had, above all, a human component.

    "Markus Beyer was a thoroughly fine human being.



    "At the moment I feel like someone hit me in the gut. I have to process all that first."

    Beyer last fought in 2008 and since 2015 had worked as a pundit on German television channel MDR.

    The channel's programme director Wolf-Dieter Jacobi said: "We are dismayed and mourn the loss of a great athlete and wonderful colleague.

    "He has shaped his boxing expertise as a member of MDR's 'Sports in the East' over the past few years.

    RIP, certainly remember the name. Heck of a fighter 35 (13 KO)-3-1



    As much as I enjoy watching fighters with power, I love the fighter with the skill to be able to win without the big bomb in his arsenal. It takes 100% focus for the entire fight and it is such an impressive feat to accomplish. Beyer was like that, not a huge puncher, but smart, crafty, hard to catch clean.

    A very good fighter, with an excellent amateur background also. 1 of the few Germans to win a title on the road. RIP champ.

    Markus Beyer put on an epic battle against Woodhall when he just about won the title.

    I was very surprised when he lost to Catley, that was a big upset.

    One of the stalwart German supermiddles who always seemed to have a belt. My first thoughts of him though is always Catley decapitating him in the 12th round to pull off a big upset. RIP.
