“It is with incredible sadness, sorrow and heartbreak to report that Tim has passed away today,” Hague’s sister, Jackie Neil, wrote in a family statement sent out on Sunday. “He was surrounded by family, listening to his favorite songs. We will miss him with so greatly.”
Hogue lost by knockout to Adam Braidwood in a boxing match at the Shaw Conference Centre in an event promoted by KO Boxing. He was pronounced dead on Sunday.
