Every now and then, we’re reminded of how dangerous boxing can be. Junior middleweight Patrick Day is reportedly in a coma after receiving emergency brain surgery following a vicious 10th round knockout, Saturday night.
Day, 27, was knocked out with a brutal left hook by Charles Conwell at Wintrust Arena in Chicago. The middleweight was knocked out cold in the 10th round and needed medical attention.

Day was placed on a stretcher and rushed to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in an ambulance. He suffered a seizure before he was taken to the emergency room, sources told ESPN. Day slipped into a coma at some point during his time at the hospital and placed on a breathing tube. However, reports are unclear if doctors placed him in a medically induced coma to help with any swelling on the brain.
This knockout is the junior middleweight’s second consecutive loss. His current record stands at 17-4-1, with 6 KOs. His opponent, Conwell, was listed as 11-0, with eight KOs, after the fight.
