    Yoi-sam lost conciousness after winning bout. Even if he survives, won't be able to resume boxing career.

    I once covered a fight where a guy died five days later. I was sitting next to the ringside phsyician. A few minutes fater the fight was over (it was a draw) somebody told her to go into the guy's dressing room. He collapsed. A few minutes later, I saw the EMTs sprinting out of the dressing room with the guy on a stretcher.
    The hospital was right across the street from the arena, but it didn't make a difference.
    It was a long time before I could even watch boxing on TV after that.
