"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".

Had the suspension been upheld by the NCAA, Grier would not have been eligible to play until WVU's October 21 game at Baylor. WVU fans have more than enough reason to be excited about Grier, seeing what he did with Florida's offense.

"Rip brother you will live in my heart forever", Braidwood posted. I know they set up an account.

A Seaquam Secondary grad, Adam Braidwood played football at Washington State University before being selected by the Edmonton Eskimos with the top pick in the 2006 Canadian Football League draft. After knocking Hague out, Braidwood helped get him to his corner but said he "knew in the ring" that something wasn't right with his opponent. Instead of leaving a comment, contact his family.

"Help them in any way that you can and let's try to leave it at that".
