Boxer Patrick Day has died aged 27 – four times after suffering head injuries in a fight against Charles Conwell.
The American was put in a coma with a severe brain injury on Saturday after he had been knocked out in Chicago in the 10th round of his welterweight bout.
Promoter Lou DiBella confirmed Day had died on Wednesdaysurrounded by his loved ones, close relatives and friends of his boxing team.
He had been a young child, brother, and good friend to many, said a statement.
Pats kindness, kindness, and generosity of spirit made a lasting impression with everyone that he met.
Day was taken after the End of the fight on the undercard of the heavyweight victory of Oleksandr Usyk over Chazz Witherspoon at the Usa.
Patrick Day did not need to box, the statement from DiBella Entertainment lasted. He came from a good family, he was clever, educated, had good worth and had additional avenues available to him to earn a living.
He chose to box, knowing the inherent risks that each and every fighter faces if he or she walks into a boxing ring. Boxing is what Pat loved to perform. Its how he motivated people and it was something which made him feel alive.
21, fellow American Conwell, wrote an emotional letter to Day following the struggle.
I never meant this to occur to you, all I wanted to do was to win, he explained.
If I could take it back, then I would. No-one accomplishes this to happen to them
Day won 17 of the 22 fights, together with four defeats and one draw.
In July, the Hugo Santillan of Argentina along with Russias Maxim Dadashev both died following injuries sustained through fights.
It becomes quite tricky to clarify or warrant the hazards of boxing at a time like this, the statement continued.
This isnt a time where edicts or pronouncements are proper, or the answers are easily obtainable. It is, though, a time for a call to act.
While we dont have the answers, we certainly know many of the questions, so have the means to answer them, and have the opportunity to react sensibly and consequently and also make boxing safer for those who participate.
That can be a way we can honor the heritage of Pat Day. People live much longer wondering if they decided or affected their world. This wasnt the case for Patrick Day if he left us
