Boxer Patrick Day was taken to a hospital after suffering a spectacular knockout in the 10th round of his fight against Charles Conwell.
In a preliminary match within the role where Oleksandr Usyk made his heavyweight debut against Chazz Witherspoon, Conwell landed a powerful right hand against Day at the start of the 10th inning. Day staggered, seconds before Conwell landed a left foot that sent him to the mat.
The back of Day’s neck hit the ground, and the fighter was instantly knocked out. It was unclear if he regained consciousness.
A doctor treated him in the ring, before Day was placed on a gurney. Paramedics took him to a hospital.
In the fight, within the super welterweight category, Day was knocked down three times. The promoter Matchroom Boxing had not released updated information on the status of the fighter.
