"Tim and I were friends, we spoke beforehand, we wanted to make a lovely fight for everyone, and that's what this is all about", said Braidwood, who is a former Edmonton Eskimos football player.

Hague died Sunday, two days after his boxing match with Braidwood, a heavy hitter who repeatedly knocked down Hague in the ring at Edmonton's Shaw Conference Centre on Friday (June 16).

A family member of Hague's has started a GoFundMe campaign to help raise money for funeral expenses.

In the video, Braidwood thanks people for their words of support. "This is really hard".

"All the theatrics leading up to this, Tim and I were friends and we spoke beforehand". "We just wanted to make a attractive fight for everyone and that's what this was all about".
