A British wrestler who defied the odds by returning to the ring after being diagnosed with cancer has tragically passed away.
Kris Travis, from Sheffield, has died aged 32 after a difficult battle with the disease, and tributes have been pouring out from his friends and contemporaries in the industry.
The grappler was a staple on the UK wrestling scene, appearing over the years for the likes of Southside, Preston City Wrestling and PROGRESS, earning the plaudits of fans and fellow professionals.
Last year, Travis confirmed his retirement following his cancer battle, after an incredible in-ring comeback despite having surgery to remove a stomach tumour and undergoing 18 weeks of chemotherapy.
Announcing his retirement one month after the return match, he said: "I'm going to put this out there right now..... I won't ever be wrestling ever again. Gutted yes. But I have to accept this. Lots of love. X"
Sad, sad news, and at such a young age too for that kind of cancer. I found him to be a very talented wrestler and was amazed that despite being told he would never be able to wrestle again, he continued to wrestle and was thought to have beaten his cancer when he made his return to the ring and was thought by many to be the future of British wrestling.
