Boxing: Should Women Be Discouraged To Participate In A Bout?
An 18- year-old Mexican teenager boxer died on Thursday, five days after being knocked out in the fourth round of a boxing bout by Canadian opponent Marie Pier Houle on Saturday night at the GVM Gala International in Montreal.
Zapata took a series of power punches in the ring’s corner and was stunned by an uppercut near the end of the fourth round before a right hook caused her mouth guard to fly out, preventing her from returning to the corner after the bell rang.
She began convulsing after the referee stopped the fight and was laid down by her husband and trainer to receive first aid from the on-site medical team before being taken to the hospital.
Yvon Michel, a fight promoter, confirmed on Sunday that Zapata had been placed in a medically induced coma, but she died on Thursday after doctors were unable to save her life.
