Patrick Day still in critical condition!
In the opening bout of DAZN’s October 12 fight card, super welterweight Patrick “All Day” Day (17-4-1, 6 KO’s) went head to head with Charles “Bad News” Conwell (11-0, 8 KO’s).
The two engaged in a lively match that saw good back and forth action. Even though both men gave a beneficial account of themselves, the constant pressure that Conwell applied was getting the best of Day.
In fact, Conwell managed to drop his opponent in the fourth and eighth rounds.
Then, in the tenth and final round, Bad News first stunned the New Yorker with a hard right hand then knocked him out cold with a flush follow-up left hook. The scene turned grim the instant Day went down.
After the left hook connected, Day instantly went limp causing his head to bounce jarringly off the canvas. When the cameras zoomed in on him his eyes appeared to be rolled in the back of his head.
The serious scene quickly put an end to all of Conwell’s celebration. Due to the grave nature of the knockout medical personnel immediately jumped in the ring and began administering care.
Within the span of a few minutes, Day was secured to a gurney and whisked straight away to the hospital.
Sadly, the New York native never regained consciousness. Even worse, while still en route to Northwestern Memorial Hospital it was reported that he began seizing in the ambulance.
Since arriving at the hospital, Day has undergone emergency surgery to contend with what ultimately was brain swelling. According to the most recent updates he remains in a coma and in serious condition.
