A 23-year-old Boxing star from Argentina, Hugo Alfredo “Dinamita” Santillan, has passed away on Thursday from the injuries he sustained in a fight against Uruguayan fighter Eduardo Javier Abreu on Saturday.

Santillan underwent surgery for a clot in his brain and twice went into cardiorespiratory failure before he died of cardiac arrest at 12:35 a.m. local time Thursday, Olocco said.

According to ringside reports, Santillan’s nose began to bleed in the fourth round and, though he raised his arm in victory after the fight, he passed out as the judges were announcing the draw — scored 95-95, 93-97 and 96-94 — against Abreu (10-1-1).

“Upon admission to the hospital, he had successive kidney failure and he did not come out of his coma,” Olocco said. “He had swelling of his brain and he never recovered consciousness. The swelling continued to worsen, and it affected the functioning of the rest of his organs.”

His death comes days while the industry was still mourning Russian boxer Maxim Dadashev who died on Tuesday  suffering a similar brain injury during Friday’s fight in Maryland against Subriel Matias of Puerto Rico.
