It’s with a heavy heart that I report former boxing champ Rocky Lockridge has passed away.

Rocky had been hospitalized for weeks and passed away on Thursday morning from complications of a stroke he suffered a while back.

He was 60.

Ricky Lockridge Jr. released the following statement regarding his dad’s passing:

It is with great pain but a whole heart that I tell you, family, and friends, that my father Ricky Lockridge aka Rocky Lockridge has passed away.

All he wanted was to be in the comfort of his home with friends/ family. God has called him to walk through the gates of heaven.

Rocky was a prizefighter in the 80’s, but later in his life, he became addicted to crack cocaine.

He was featured on an episode of A&E’s “Intervention” and he quickly became a meme when a clip of him breaking down crying went viral.



My sincerest condolences to the Lockridge family during this difficult time.

Rest in peace, Rocky.
