I believe the international boxing titles establish notability. An AfD would be a more appropriate venue to determine notability. And I'm not sure what about the articles covering him, his matches, a controversy over a fixed bout, and an obituary don't establish notability. Seems like more bias. A title holding boxer West Indies and Jamaican champion during his career isn't notable according to whom? The Sydney Morning Herald is a local paper for a boxer from Jamaica? Nonsense.

Obituaries don't tend to establish notability as millions of people have obits. CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 13:32, 24 August 2018 (UTC)
