I hate it when this stuff happens.

The best of us are mowed down like wheat, doing what the rest of us have done many times without incident.

I wonder if it was a head shot, sub-clinical mono and a spleen burst, sub-clinical heart defect, or just a freak bleed out.

My sincere condolences for his family.

The article doesn't give many details. Apparently there were no signs the fight needed to be stopped, but then something happened that was clear enough to the referee that he jumped in and caught him before he hit the canvas. Sad no matter the circumstances. Im sure his opponent is having a rough time of it as well.

Probably a congenital heart defect. **** kills lots of young athletes without warning.
