Shocking news about boxer, Simiso Buthelezi, has arisen as he is in a coma following a boxing match. Chilling footage shows the South African boxer, who was undefeated, become disorientated amid a boxing match with Siphesihle Mntungwa, as Buthelezi began punching the air appearing to spar with a non existing fighter, per TMZ.
The two fighters boxed it out for the WBF African lightweight title; however, things took a turn in the tenth round. In the video, Buthelezi’s opponent slips through the ropes, and shortly after, Buthelezi is seen turning towards the referee as he swings right after the referee moves and gets out of the way. Buthelezi continues to swing; however, once the referee noticed something was off, the fight was immediately stopped. Buthelezi was rushed to the hospital and news have been revealed that the boxer is in a coma.
His trainer, Bheki Mngomezulu, noted,
“There’s no change in his condition, he’s in a coma, he’s not talking, moving or doing anything right now. The doctors say there could be a blood clot on the brain due to a blow to the head.
