Boxer Patrick Day transported to hospital after vicious KO

Boxer Patrick Day transported to hospital after vicious KO

Junior middleweight boxer Patrick Day is in a coma following emergency brain surgery last night after he suffered a brutal tenth-round knockout against Olympian Charles Conwell in Chicago.

Conwell (11-0, 8 KOs), of Cleveland, dominated the fight, dropping Day with right hands in the fourth and eighth rounds before landing two rights and a left hook that knocked him out cold in the 10th round, causing referee Celestino Ruiz to wave off the fight at 1 minute, 46 seconds.

Day was in such bad shape that he was rushed out of the ring on a stretcher and suffered a seizure in the process. It is not yet known if Day's coma occurred naturally or if he was placed into a medically induced coma by the doctors.

No details of the head injury were given and the promoter, Matchroom Boxing, did not issue a statement on Saturday night other than to say Day was transported to a local hospital.

Aside from Pattinson, Kravitz joins Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon , and supposedly Jonah Hill in a still-undisclosed role. Kravitz is coming off her second season of HBO's " Big Little Lies ", which aired its finale in July.

As of Sunday evening, DiBella Ent. indicates that Day is in a coma caused by the injury and is in extremely critical condition.

U.S. sports broadcaster ESPN reported that Day had emergency brain surgery and went into a coma, but did not say whether he fell into the coma or it was induced by the doctors.

Hearn said he felt Day's family and manager, Lou DiBella, would want to make their own statement. "We appreciate the outpouring of support, prayers, and offers of assistance from all corners of the boxing community". "Please keep Pat in your prayers, thoughts, and hearts". In a message on Twitter, Conwell wrote: "Praying for you", and "Keep fighting!" He's 17-4-1 in his pro career.

Things are looking pretty grim at the moment for the 2012 Daily News Golden Gloves title recipient but we're truly hoping for a turnaround sometime soon.
