Oyo State boxer dies during training

Oyo State Sports Council was thrown into mourning on Friday when one of its promising boxer, Friday Obasi, 28, dropped dead, while sparring with a fellow boxer at the premises of Lekan Salami Sports Complex.

Obasi, who never gave any signs of ill-health prior to the training session on the faithful day, fell after receiving a punch from his sparring partner and hit head to a bare floor where they were training.

He collapsed as he could not get prompt medical attention as the clinic inside the stadium was yet to open for the day at 11:am. The boy with a deep cut on his head was, however, taken to the clinic.
