The Italian boxer Christian Daghio, 49, has sadly passed away with floored knockout punch that landed him in Coma before he died days later from his opponent, Don Pareuang.
Daghio was then rushed to hospital and it became clear that he had suffered brain damage from the bout.
Unfortunately the 49-year-old was pronounced dead in a Bankok hospital, a week after the knockout.
The fight happened in the final round of the WBC Asian Boxing Council silver light heavyweight bout fight between Daghio and his opponent, Don Pareuang in Bangkok last week.
Christian Daghio was a true legend of the sport. He had over 200 fights under his belt, and won seven world titles in that time.
Christian’s brother, Fabrizio, has paid tribute to the fighter, saying he wanted to fight for years to come, and the ring was ‘his life’:
“He died like he wanted. I have no regrets because he was like that. He wanted to fight till he was 80. The ring was his life and he died as a champion.” he said to the Italian media.
“My brother had a girlfriend in Thailand and a five-year-old girl who still doesn’t know her father has died.”
