“When people asked him about God and religion, he told them that boxing is his religion and that the boxing gym is his church,” said Armand Teodorescu. “And that’s where we’re going to have his memorial service.”

Adrian has been a part of the boxing community for decades. He has lived a life that many could only dream of and very few will actually get to experience. His love and passion for the sport have been revolutionary not only in Canada, but all over the World. His love for the sport is what allowed him to change the lives of so many people, believing and bringing out the potential in hundreds, thousands of boxers over the years.

  • Phil Bye says:

    Hearing of Adrian’s passing is very sad. When I attended school in Toronto my coach from Sault Ste. Marie Frank Nolan Sr. contacted Adrian to see if I could get trained with him while attending school back in the mid 80s. Adrian trained me and coached me at Gold’s gym. I have fond memories of Adrian. He treated me the same as he treated Lennox Lewis who would come with Greg Johnson every Wednesday from Kitchener Waterloo to be trained by Adrian. I was lucky and got to be trained by Adrian everyday. My condolences go out to Armand and his family
