Dead Boxer's Body Propped Up In Fake Boxing Ring For Wake

Puerto Rican boxer Christopher Rivera was shot and killed last week and pursuant to his last wishes, his family had his body embalmed and placed in a corner of a fake boxing ring.

The funeral home—which has done this sort of thing before—set up the ring in the rec center of his apartment building.
