PATRICK DAY Championship Boxer Has Died At Age 27
PATRICK DAY has died aged 27 having spent the past four days in a coma following his brutal KO in his loss on the Oleksandr Usyk undercard.
The American boxer was knocked out by Charles Conwell in Saturday's tenth-round defeat in Chicago. The super-welterweight was rushed to hospital on a stretcher after he faced a barrage of punches from Conwell and did not move on the canvas for several minutes.
Poor Day suffered seizures on his way to Northwester Memorial Hospital and had emergency brain surgery before remaining in a coma. His promoter Lou DiBella said in a statement: "Patrick Day passed away today, October 16, 2019, succumbing to the traumatic brain injury he suffered in his fight this past Saturday, October 12, at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago, IL.
"He was surrounded by his family, close friends and members of his boxing team, including his mentor, friend and trainer Joe Higgins. "On behalf of Patrick's family, team, and those closest to him, we are grateful for the prayers, expressions of support and outpouring of love for Pat that have been so obvious since his injury.
"Patrick Day didn't need to box.
"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."
Promoter Eddie Hearn tweeted: "Devastated to hear the news of the passing of Patrick Day. "I met him for the first time last Thursday, what a charming young man with a dream and a smile that lit up the room. "Our deepest prayers are with his family, his trainer Joe Higgins, Charles Conwell and promoter Lou DiBella."
Ring announcer Michael Buffer tweeted: "Just TRAGIC! Words fail me at this time! HORRIBLE NEWS!
"R.I.P. Dear Patrick.
"Everyone in the boxing community is crushed."
