Boxer Dies Under Assumed Identity
Last week a fighter by the name of Isus Velichkov was killed in the ring during a fight in Albania, but now it seems the man fighting was in-fact someone else.
The fighter who sadly did pass away was named Boris Stanchov, who has never been recorded to have a professional fight, came upon Velichkov’s license granting him not only the ability to fight, but the still-living fighter’s medical records.
How this came to be was unclear, but per Boxing Scene, moments into the fight Stanchov collapsed in the ring.
Sanchov’s legs gave way early in the fight, with a left jab by his opponent, Ardit Murja, stumbling back and onto the canvas.
Medical staff rushed in, but he could not be revived and passed away.
