Sydney: Australian boxer Davey Browne Jr. has died of injuries suffered in Friday’s IBF super-featherweight regional title bout against Carlo Magali of the Philippines. Browne, a 28-year-old father of two, was knocked out 30 seconds from the end of the final round of the 12-round bout. He regained consciousness but later collapsed and was rushed to Sydney’s Liverpool Hospital in critical condition, suffering from a brain injury. Police confirmed Davey’s death on Monday and said a post-mortem would be conducted. “It’s 30-odd years since we’ve had a fatality or a serious injury,” Australian Boxing Federation president John McDougall said. “It’s tragic, tragic news. “We did hear that he’d recommenced breathing on his own, and we were hoping and praying that that was a good sign, but this morning’s news is shattering.”
