Boxer Patrick Day Succumbs To Head Injury During Fight + Opponent Writes Emotional Letter

27 Year Old boxer Patrick Day succumed to head Injuries he suffered four days after a fight with colleague Charles Conwell....
 





Patrick day slipped into a coma on Saturday after he was knocked out in the 10th round of his super welterweight bout in Chicago.
Promoter Lou DiBella confirmed this and said Day had died on Wednesday "surrounded by his family, close friends and members of his boxing team".


"He was a son, brother, and good friend to many," said a statement.
Pat's kindness, positivity, and generosity of spirit made a lasting impression with everyone he met."


Day was taken from the ring on a stretcher after the conclusion of the fight on the undercard of Oleksandr Usyk's heavyweight victory over Chazz Witherspoon in the US.

"Patrick Day didn't need to box," the statement from DiBella Entertainment continued. "He came from a good family, he was smart, educated, had good values and had other avenues available to him to earn a living.
"He chose to box, knowing the inherent risks that every fighter faces when he or she walks into a boxing ring. Boxing is what Pat loved to do. It's how he inspired people and it was something that made him feel alive."


Conwell, 21, wrote an emotional letter to Day following the fight.


"I never meant this to happen to you, all I wanted to do was win," he said.
If I could take it all back, I would. No-one deserves this to happen to them."

Day won 17 of his 22 fights, with four defeats and one draw.

    2. Its scary, Is there any safe sport again?, during that super eagles friendly on Sunday, our goalie twisted his leg, I felt the pain from my TV oh, and he will be out for six months.

      Marc Vivien Foe, Sam Okwaraji etc died on the soccer pitch. So sad
