Patrick Day passes away due to injuries suffered in the ring on Usyk versus Witherspoon undercard.

It is with heavy heart to learn of the passing of Super Welterweight Patrick Day who succumbed to injuries after being knocked out in the tenth round of his October 12th 2019, bout against Charles Conwell. The two fighters were part of the undercard for Oleksandr Usyk versus Chazz Witherspoon main event broadcast on DAZN which took place at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago Illinois.

The knockout took place at one minute and forty six seconds of the tenth and final round, Conwell landed a combination which sent Day to the canvas and upon seeing the manner in which Day fell, referee Celestino Ruiz immediately waved the contest off and called for paramedics.

Once taken out of the ring by stretcher and brought back to the dressing room, transport was arranged for Day to be taken to a local hospital where he underwent immediate surgery for injuries. He would be placed in a medically induced coma afterwards and never regained consciousness.

Patrick Day once the number one ranked 152 lb amateur in the country, turned professional on January 23rd, 2013 where he scored a first round knockout over Zachariah Kelley.

On behalf of Billy C, Sal Cenicola, Alex Pierpaoli my self and everyone else at the Talkin Boxing with Billy C TV & Radio show we extend out condolences to the family and friends of Patrick Day in this very solemn time.
