Denny died of injuries sustained in a bout with Gaetan Hart in Montreal, QC, Canada. This bout was on the undercard of the first Sugar Ray Leonard-Roberto Duran bout. Denny had represented Guyana as a lightweight at the 1976 Olympic games. He didn't compete due to his country boycotting over the inclusion of New Zealand. Denny technically had a first round bye, and lost to Bogdan Gajda of Poland on a walk-over.
