Sad news as Colombian boxer Luis Quinones died Friday, five days after was knocked out in the eighth and final round of a bout in Barranquilla.
Quinones, whose final record is 10-1 (6 knockouts), had been in a coma since undergoing surgery after suffering a blood clot in his brain during his fight with a fellow unbeaten boxer, Jose Munoz last Saturday at Coliseo Elias Chegwi. Quinones collapsed to the canvas and was counted out with just thirty seconds remaining in the fight.
The Colombian Boxing Federation announced the news Friday, saying in a statement, “We express our most sincere condolences to all his family. Peace in his grave and resignation to the designs of God.”
The junior welterweight boxer was 25 years old.
