A 27-year-old boxer died on Wednesday four days after suffering a traumatic brain injury during a bout in Chicago, Illinois, reported USA Today.

Patrick Day was brought to Northwestern Memorial Hospital after he fell into a coma during a knockout loss to Charles Conwell in their super welterweight fight last Saturday.

He underwent a brain surgery but never regained consciousness.

“He was surrounded by his family, close friends and members of his boxing team, including his mentor, friend and trainer Joe Higgins,” boxing promoter Lou DiBella said in his website.

“He was a son, brother, and good friend to many. Pat’s kindness, positivity and generosity of spirit made a lasting impression with everyone he met,” he added.

Two days after the fight, Conwell posted a heartfelt message to Day on social media.

“I never meant for this to happen to you. All I ever wanted to do was win. If I could take it all back I would,” Conwell wrote.

“No one deserves for this to happen to them,” said Conwell, adding that, “I replay the fight over and over in my head thinking what if this never happened and why did it happen to you.”
