17 Year Old Indonesian boxer Tubagus Sakti was pronounced dead today after losing a fight to Ical Tobida at the TVRI studio in Jakarta yesterday. Tubagus Sakti suffered convulsions after the January 27, 2013 bout for the vacant KTPI junior flyweight title and was rushed to a hospital where he died of a brain haemorrhage (bleeding in the brain).
Tubagus Sakti lost by TKO in the eighth round. The boxer raised both his hands in the air, clearly unable to carry on with the fight which was correctly recognized by the ref as such. Ical Tobida however managed to land a few more blows to Tubagus’s head before the ref could break it up. RIP, young boxer.
