Italian Christian Daghio has tragically died after a boxing title fight in Bangkok.

The 49-year-old, a former champion in Muay Thai and boxing, passed away in hospital on Friday after he was put in a coma due to injuries suffered during the WBC Asia title match against Don Parueang on October 26.

He leaves behind his wife and five-year-old daughter.

Footage shows Daghio being knocked out in the 12th round after receiving several huge punches to his head and face.

He was immediately treated by medical staff in the ring before he was rushed to a hospital in Bangkok.

Daghio’s brother and manager Fabrizio has now confirmed the news of his sibling’s death.
