Police received no report. But because Tyson Fury, the most famous boxer, publicly acknowledged his relationship with Rico Burton, and because Rico Burton is known to be his cousin, the case received a lot of media and public attention.

What happened to Rico Burton?

Tyson Fury’s cousin Rico Burton was tragically stabbed in Altrincham, Manchester, just after 3am today (August 21). The boxing champion took to Instagram to pay tribute to his cousin, writing: ‘My cousin was killed last night, stabbed in the neck. This is getting ridiculous – idiots carry knives. This must stop as soon as possible.

The UK Government needs to bring in stronger penalties for knife crime – it’s a pandemic and you don’t know how bad it is until it’s one of your own!” Fury said life is precious and can be taken away very quickly, urging people to enjoy every moment. He concluded by saying: “RIP Rico Burton. May God give you a good place in heaven. See you soon.”

Knife crime has recently become a serious problem in the UK, with many young people carrying knives and using them to commit violence. It is hoped that by increasing the penalties for those caught carrying knives, the government will send a strong message that this type of crime will not be tolerated.

Friends said he previously worked as a roofer but moved into car sales. Rico was said to be 31 years old. His former trainer Steve Egan, who also trained Tyson at one point, was “devastated” to hear of the tragedy. Egan told the Sun:

I handed Rico over; he is a nice boy I am devastated. “I feel like crying. I’ve known him and his brother since he was 13.

What a talent, it was fantastic. “He was always a grafter; he worked so hard and so hard in the ring.” Rico’s death is a tragedy, not only for his family and friends, but for the boxing community. He was a talented fighter with a bright future ahead of him.
