On behalf of the Fisher family, it is with great sadness that DiBella Entertainment announces the passing of legendary boxing trainer, James “Bouie” Fisher. He was 83.

Fisher, best known for his work with Bernard Hopkins, was a mainstay in the Philadelphia boxing scene for decades. He won the 2001 Eddie Futch-John F.X. Condon Award, presented by the Boxing Writers’ Association of America annually to honor the year’s best trainer.

Fisher leaves behind his wife, Peggy; 8 children: Andre, Bernadette, Bernard, Cecilia, James, Josephine, Valerie, and Victoria; and 15 grand children.

DiBella Entertainment joins the boxing world in mourning the tragic loss of this great man. Please keep Bouie and the Fisher family in your prayers at this difficult time.

Memorial service arrangements will be announced in the coming days.
