American boxer Patrick Day died in Chicago from a brain injury he suffered on Saturday, when he was knocked out by Charles Conwell in the 10th round.

Day, 27, was left motionless on the canvas after a flurry of punches and remained in a coma for four days.

The tragedy came on top of Argentine super lightweight Hugo Santillan, 23, dying in July from injuries suffered in the ring. And Russian Maxim Dadashev, 28, died two days before Santillan from brain injuries during a fight.
