The World Boxing Association (WBA) and sports in general are moved by the death of Argentine fighter Hugo Santillan. Media from the South American country reported that after five days of intense fighting in the hospital, the boxer could not survive.

Santillan took to the ring this last Saturday against Uruguayan Eduardo Abreu, with the combat ending in a draw. While the cards were being read, the combatant collapsed and was assisted out of the ring and then taken to a medical center, where he was treated during recent days.

The Santa Fe native was 23 years old and professionally boxed since 2015 with a record of 19 wins, 6 losses, 2 draws and 8 knockouts.

The WBA regrets this sad death and puts all its prayers on Hugo to rest and the peace and for his family and friends.
