Junior middleweight Patrick Day reportedly remains in a coma after he was knocked out by Charles Conwell on Saturday night at Wintrust Arena in Chicago.
According to ESPN, Day, 27, was hit by Conwell with a left hook that knocked him out cold in the 10th round, giving Conwell the USBA Super-Welterweight Title once again.
After Day was down for several minutes while receiving medical attention, he was removed from the ring on a stretcher and brought to Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
While being transported to the hospital, the professional boxer suffered a seizure in the ambulance, according to DAZN.com.
Day was then given a breathing tube in the emergency room and slipped into a coma, sources told ESPN. It is not yet known if Day’s coma occurred naturally or if he was placed into a medically induced coma by the doctors.
