Boxer Patrick Day has died after he sustained head injuries in a fight on Saturday night against fellow American Charles Conwell.
The 27-year-old was knocked out in the 10th round of his super-welterweight bout in Chicago and fell into a coma, with his promoter confirming Day’s death 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 from Lou DiBella.
“Pat’s kindness, positivity, and generosity of spirit made a lasting impression with everyone he met. 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.
However he chooses to be a boxer due to the passion he has for it.
However Charles Conwell express pain and bitterness as he speaks ” although I never want to lose the fight but it wasn’t my intention to claim his life” .
