Mother and coach pay tribute to stabbing victim

BUNDABERG Boxing Club members are mourning the death of local boxer Landon Delinecort.

The 24-year-old man, who died in a stabbing incident on Friday night, had been part of the club since he was 14.

President and head coach Sid Blair said Mr Delinecort had always been focused and determined in the ring and his presence at the club would be dearly missed.

"Landon was a great boxer. He was very dedicated and loved by all," he said.

"He achieved some amazing things with us, including a few Wide Bay titles and a state title."

Mr Blair said the younger boxers at the club looked up to Mr Delinecort, who was always keen to give advice or lend a helping hand.

"He used to help out the little fellas a lot. He took them under his wing," Mr Blair said.

"We had a tournament in Bribie Island on Saturday night and they definitely fought hard for him."

Mr Blair said the club was still coming to terms with the news of Mr Delinecort's death.

"I still can't believe it," he said.

"It is going to be very hard to go to training- Landon was always there."
