“This is such a sad day for my family and for everyone who knew Desmond,” said Kauffman.
“Desmond was like a son to me.  He is my sister’s son, and he is basically the same age as my children so we are extremely close.  Desmond came to boxing just a few years ago and he picked up the business so fast.  We have run more shows then anybody in the country, and they all have come off so smoothly.  That was because of Desmond.  He was on top of every detail, which made the events go off without a hitch.  But most of all he was very selfless and caring.  He was always there for someone in need.  He was a great young man, who was very smart, and he was always joking. It was such an honor for me to have him on board with King’s Promotions.  He was such a special person who was loved and will be missed so much.”
