Boxer Patrick Day in coma after brutal KO against Charles Conwell

Junior Middleweight boxer Patrick Day reportedly remained in a coma early Sunday after undergoing emergency brain surgery following a brutal 10th-round knockout against Charles Conwell.

Day, 27, of Freeport, N.Y., struggled to find his footing against Conwell in the fight at Wintrust Arena in Chicago on Saturday night. Conwell, a 2016 U.S. Olympian, dropped Day twice in the fourth and eighth rounds before landing a left hook early in the 10th that instantly knocked him out cold.

The New York fighter was treated by a doctor in the ring for several minutes. It was unclear whether he regained consciousness. He was then taken off on a stretcher by paramedics and rushed to the hospital.

Day suffered a seizure while on the way to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, sources with knowledge of his condition told ESPN. He was given a breathing tube in the emergency room and at some point went into a coma, a source said.

It was unclear whether Day was placed into a medically induced coma to allow time for the brain to reduce swelling, according to ESPN.

There has been no official update on Day’s condition.

Eddie Hearn, the managing director of the promoter, Matchroom Sport, said only he “didn’t think the situation is great.” He said he felt Day’s family and manager, Lou DiBella, would want to make their own statement.

Following the scare in the ring, DiBella asked for prayers on Twitter.
