Boxer Bazza Bailey Commits Suicide



UK Boxer, Andy Bazzy Bailey passed away. Bazzy Bailey died today July 11 2020. According to reports, Bazza Bailey took his life today.

He commited suicide today just few hours after posting on his Facebook page “I’M GOING TO HANG MYSELF TODAY”

Bazza Bailey runs the Ultimate Fitness gym in Chesterton.

Confirming the sudden demise of Bazza, his friend Eddie Hall wrote “To my bro Bazza Bailey . It took me a few hours for me to digest and compute what’s happened today.
I know there’s so many people who wish they could have saved you and done something to help but unfortunately we couldn’t… Me being one of them.

I don’t care what people think of Bazza for what he did today, he was my friend, a man that did everything he could to help anyone and did amazing things to set examples throughout the community. He wasn’t thinking straight when he did what he did today, the help he dearly needed just wasn’t there for him.

I believe the UK needs better systems in place to assist people who are in a bad place, I know a few people who gave their all to help him recently and in the past inc myself to keep him from harm, but ultimately there was nothing to stop a man on a clear warpath to do the worst.

I’m angry that he was let down over and over by the system!
I’m angry that all the people around him are left feeling guilty for his actions today!
I’m angry that his suicide is just another statistic for the government to promote!
‼️Something needs to change‼️
This man changed my life and many others for the better, I just wish myself or someone else could have changed his for the better.
R.I.P. Bazza  Big Love your Mongo friend Ed”

Jemma Ball wrote “This is how I remember Bazza Bailey, full of life and such a kind heart when it came to helping others.
I’m sorry that you were failed by mental health services when you needed them the most, I’m sorry you weren’t able to fight the demons any more. All my love goes out to his family. If anyone is in a similar position please message me, even if we haven’t spoken for a while I can lend an ear.  Or you can call the Samaritans on 116 123.”

His collegaue James Ford wrote “When someone passes people always say ‘nicest guy, do anything for anyone’ n half the time its rubish.
Bazza Bailey was genuinely the nicest bloke and would do anything for anyone and everyone will say the same. He earned my respect 12 years ago when i was a complete stranger, went out his way to help me at a time when it seemed no one else could.
R.I.P. heartbreaking”

Emma Sullivan wrote “This is just one of many photos Bazza Bailey of you helping us on our Homeless and Rough sleeper outreach evenings around our communities, helping us to feed and keep warm many people and you never judged or looked down on any of the people we met on those evenings, you sat down next to them and listened You walked the streets with us on many of nights till gone 12am, always so kind to me and you helped me massively to help other people. Heart of gold and so selfless. I’m so sorry you were suffering inside.

The only thing worse then watching your live this morning was seeing the hurt and heartache In your face I hope you are at peace mate. My heart goes out to you, your family and friends. Fly high. R.I.P #mentalhealthmatters”

Storm Nelson wrote “Bazza Bailey I know your heart was heavy  and your head was even heavier and all the people that loved you would have done anything to take it away from you that not at easy i know We live to learn, and there was no escape for you my friend 4 moments in time, rest easy beautiful person, all good intentions and all that. I will remember what you told me I will always remember that day that’s ours to keep and no one else. When people say rest in peace I get what that means now rest now head down no stress no anxiety rest now please beautiful”

Luke Fullbrook wrote “Today our community of stoke has lost a truly wonderful and beautiful soul. Bazza Bailey always wanted to help, regardless of who you were because he had struggled and known such depths of darkness his compassion ran deeper than most. I didn’t know baz for as long as some of you nor was I as close, but he touched and helped save me. A lot of you will be angry, and in shock and unable to comprehend what has happened today. Some of you will believe it to be selfish. It’s not, it’s an act of desperation by someone in intense pain, someone who just wants the pain to stop. There is no suffering greater than that which drives people to suicide; suicide defines the moment in which mental pain exceeds the human capacity to bear it. It represents the abandonment of hope. Please f dg not be angry with yourselves or with baz. If you need to vent, talk, anything I’m here as are others. Goodnight bro, you’re now free and Thankyou”

    His name was not Andy it was in fact Jonathan nickname ‘Bazza’, I am his uncle and can recall the day he was born. A true citizen of this town did some much work for charity and people in need. Devastating.
