A Pakistani Boxer, Muhammad Aslam Khan, has tragically passed away at the age of 27 following a brutal KO during a charity bout.
Aslam Khan collapsed in the ring after being hit by Wali Khan Tareen and died in a hospital in Karachi, Pakistan, as a result of internal injuries.
According to local media reports, the injured boxer was rushed to a private hospital for treatment but passed away due to his injuries.
The boxers were from the Pishin district of Balochistan and were fighting in the 80kg weight category.
It is understood the bout took place for charity and BOL News report there were no medical personnel present at ringside.
It added: “He didn’t die in the ring, he suffered facial injuries and there wasn’t anyone there to look after him.”
Marca say Aslam Khan combined boxing with his work in the Pakistani Election Commission.
