WATCH: Zimbabwean Boxer Dies After Knockout

A Zimbabwean boxer, Taurai Zimunya, died Monday after a third-round knockout in a bantamweight fight on Sunday evening. 

Zimunya (24) of Legends Boxing Club in Harare’s high-density suburb of Mbare, was knocked out in the third round of his fight against Tinashe Majoni of the Charles Manyuchi Academy stable at Body Active Gym in Borrowdale.

Zimunya reportedly collapsed during the bout and was initially treated at the ringside, before being taken to Parirenyatwa Hospital in the capital, but never regained consciousness. Watch the video below for more details.

The Zimbabwe National Boxing and Wrestling Control Board confirmed the sad news.

Although the medical report on the cause of death is yet to be released sources said the deceased boxer suffered bleeding to the brain after the bout.

This is the first time in Zimbabwe that a boxer has died from injuries sustained in the ring.

The fight that was organised by veteran boxing trainer Ali “Otto” Phiri, was sanctioned by the Zimbabwe National Boxing and Wrestling Control Board. 

It was one of the 10 fights on the bill hosted by the Otto Boxing Club which was dubbed “Rise of Champions”.

Posting in Mixed Martial Arts Zim WhatsApp Group, Sensei Sneider Adam (+263 78 827 3873) urged members to contribute towards the funeral.
