After the tragic fate of Patrick Day, who died in Chicago during a meeting, the boxing world is again in mourning.
And this time the Australian boxer Dwight Ritchie cries, suffering from a fatal illness at the age of 27 after receiving a punch in the stomach.
According to local media reports, the young athlete, working for Team Ellis Boxing and promising superwelter weights with 19 victories and only two defeats, was training in the gym in Melbourne, when he received a blow to his belly. Then he suddenly returned to the corner and collapsed in the ring. Useless help.
Ritchie, nicknamed the "Cowboy warrior", leaves three children. His team has launched a fundraiser to help family members.
