Davey Browne Jr dies following KO

Davey Browne Jnr has passed away after initially being placed on life support following a bout against Carlo Magali last Friday night in Australia

The 28-year-old was knocked cold by Filipino Magali in the final round of their match-up for a fringe version of the IBF title and never recovered from his injuries.

Doctors at Liverpool hospital in Sydney, Australia tried in vain to to save Browne who becomes the latest statistic of tragedy in the sport of boxing.

It has been confirmed that a post mortem is to be carried out on the father of two’s body.

Browne’s sad death comes just six months on from the passing of 23 year-old compatriot Braydon Smith who collapsed following a clash with another Filipino native John Vincent Moralde in Toowoomba.

Smith, known as ‘The Great White’, suffered a bleed on the brain following unanimous ten-round defeat in March and never regained consciousness. He was pronounced dead two days after the fight.
