BOXER Travell Mazion has died aged 24 after a car crash in Texas.
The unbeaten super-welterweight died on Wednesday after colliding with oncoming traffic, the Texas Department of Public Safety told TMZ.
His 2010 Cadillac STS crashed into a Honda Pilot after hitting the rear quarter panel of a Nissan Sentra.
Mazion was pronounced dead at the scene.
And the 61-year-old male who was driving the Honda was then pronounced dead at hospital.
Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions released a statement on Thursday paying tribute to Mazion.
It read: “We at Golden Boy are deeply saddened by the tragic passing of Travell Mazion last night.
“Mazion was a kind, charismatic young man who lit up every room he walked into and brought excitement to fans inside the ring.
“We send our heartfelt prayers and thoughts to his family. May he R.I.P.”
De La Hoya himself paid tribute on Twitter as well as welterweight contender Vergil Ortiz.
Mazion made his professional debut in 2013 and went on to win 17 straight.
He last fought in January, knocking out Fernando Castaneda in his native Texas.
