Former Muay Thai Champion Dead at Age 49 After KO Loss for WBC Fringe Title

Italian fighter Christian Daghio has sadly passed away after a devastating knockout left the 49-year-old in a coma he never came out of.

It happened in the final round of the WBC Asian Boxing Council silver light heavyweight fight between Daghio, who was a legend of the Muay Thai scene, and his opponent, Don Pareuang.

Seconds after getting up from a first knockdown, the dazed Daghio was hit with a flurry of punches from Pareuang.
