    Tributes are flooding social media around the world to honor the late Scottish fighter, Jordan Coe. Coe moved to Thailand 3 years ago, to pursue a passion for Muay Thai and was training out of the Lamnamnoon Sor Sumalee Gym in Ubon Ratchathani.

    Coe’s body was found by police in the Muang district of Thailand on Sunday. Hotel staff say he left mid-day on Saturday in a heavy sweat suit. He had been scheduled to fight Khon Bola, a Cambodian boxer, on Sunday night. Coe’s fight camp shared that he was likely out to shed three kilograms to meet the 61-kg limit for the bout.

    A preliminary autopsy completed at Maharat Nakhon Ratchasima Hospital, concludes Coe suffered severe dehydration and shock to his system, while jogging in the scorching sun.

    According to Lamnamnoon camp owner, Kukrit Kamolrit, Coe gained a reputation as “the dancing boxer” for his traditional Isan style dancing before beginning a bout. He is remembered by friends and family as a lovable, caring, and enthusiastic young man with a passion for the sport.

    A crowd-funding page has been set up to ease the financial burden on his family to bring his body home to Scotland. Thanks to the incredible support of the international Muay Thai community, they currently have close to 1,000 donors raising almost £22,000.
