It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Karl-Göran Zahedi Fougstedt aka KGZ, WBSS photographer, and our dear friend.
We are heartbroken by KGZ’s sudden death after a short battle with cancer. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time of terrible loss.
Swedish KGZ (51) was a multi-awarded photographer who covered WBSS shows in the UK, Germany, and Latvia as well as many shows for Team Sauerland throughout Scandinavia.
Boxing was the arena where he felt most at home, most happy, and most inspired. He loved the sport, but more than anything else, he loved the boxers for their bravery and dedication.
In this tough time, we seek solace in KGZ’s photos, thousands of photos, that will forever remind us of his incredible talent and unmatched passion for the sport.
He will be greatly missed and remembered as one of the greats of his trade.
There will never be another KGZ.
