Cole was just 25 years of age. Friends say he had talked of playing Russian Roulette in the lead-up to the discovery of his body. An autopsy is due be held later this week.
Originally from New Orleans, Ivan Cole won two and lost three of his fights during a short career that started in 2012. His last brawl was against George Pacarariu in March of 2015.
