On June 9, Mazion posted a selfie on Instagram, shared that he was "going thru a lot" at the time. "Can’t Lie," he captioned the photo, "I’ve definitely been going thru a lot! But with God On My Side it’s nothing but Smiles 😁😁😁😁😁😁"

Mazion — who would have turned 25 years old next Friday — marked his 24th birthday last July 24, thanking God for "Letting Me See 24."

"I was super happy to run my 4 miles this morning!" he wrote on Instagram at the time. "The whole time I ran I was talking to God Telling Thank You So Much For Letting Me See 24 Years of Life! It feels amazing. Now he is blessing me with another boxing match in 2 1/2 weeks! What more can I ask for! Thank You God! Thank you! 🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿☝🏿☝🏿☝🏿☝🏿☝🏿☝🏿☝🏿"
