Canelo Álvarez Remembers his Dear Friend, Carlos Bremer

Taking to his Instagram, the 33-year-old Mexican champion wrote a somber message in remembrance of his “dear friend”, Bremer. Posting an image of him with Bremer on the golf course, he wrote in Spanish. Translated by Instagram, it read, “Thank you for your support and your teachings, I will remember you with fondness and admiration. Safe journey my dear friend.” The President of Value was an instrumental part of Canelo’s boxing career from its formative days.

The company founded by Bremer himself was a key sponsor in many of Canelo’s fights, standing strong by the Jalisco fighter when he started headlining the sport. The late businessman was also in attendance at Canelo’s wedding to Fernanda Gomez in May 2021. Not so long ago, the two of them came together for charity purposes as well. One major initiative that stands out is the 2021, Christmas Eve demarche, when both of them took a trailer full of toys to the kids of Nuevo Leon, a city in Mexico. Images of the fighter with Bremer driving an HGV through the streets of the city went viral instantly.

While Canelo’s heartwarming tribute to the late businessman shines a light on their tight relationship, other personalities of the boxing world joined the fighter in paying their homages as well. One of them remains the WBC president, Mauricio Sulaiman.

In a heartening post on X, formerly Twitter, Sulaiman remembered Bremer, who was an avid believer and promoter of the sport. In Spanish, the 54-year-old Mexican posted, “A sad loss for the Mexican sports community. A great enthusiast of baseball, boxing and many more and National Sports Award. May Carlos Bremer rest in peace and may his family achieve quick resignation with the company of God in these difficult times.”

For his contributions to the sporting landscape in Mexico, Bremer was awarded the National Sports Award in 2017. Besides Canelo, he’s known to have promoted the careers of racquetball player Paola Longoria and boxer, Juan Manuel Márquez. He was also a significant voice in the reconstruction of the LMB (Mexican League of Baseball) team, Sultanes de Monterrey.

Bremer’s contributions to the land of Mexico stand strong in the wake of his death. The sporting world comes together mourning the loss of such a strong personality. In the coming days, it is expected that more such outpouring of emotions will mark his unexpected passing away.
