Boxing’s Treang Sossay passes away aged 69

Cambodian boxing legend Treang Sossay passed away at 9:20pm on Saturday night at Calmette Hospital.

He was 69 years old. “He died because of lung and stomach diseases, which he’d suffered from for the past five years.

His son had sent him to hospital many times, but they still couldn’t help him,” Sossay’s wife, Sat Sokhen, told the Post yesterday as she fought back tears.

The body of Sossay, who was a well known and respected referee and the owner of Singha Boxing Club in Phnom Penh, is currently being held at Preah Puth pagoda in 7 Makara district before transportation to his home province of Battambang tomorrow for cremation.
