Taurai Zimunya, a Zimbabwean boxer, reportedly died shortly after collapsing after a knockout in the third round of a bantamweight battle on Sunday evening, October 31.

According to iharare.com, the now-deceased was knocked out in a lightweight match by Tinashe Majoni of Charles Manyuchi Academy in the Rise of Champions fight series in Zimbabwe’s capital, Harare.

When he collapsed, he was treated at the ringside and later transferred to Parirenyatwa Hospital on oxygen support for further treatment.
