Scottish Boxer dies due to blows in combat

The British Boxer Mike Towell died on the Friday night at a hospital in Glasgow as a result of serious head injuries during a match played a day earlier, said the Boxer club.

Towell, for 25 years, was transferred from the ring directly to a clinic after losing in the fifth round to Dale Evans in a Thursday televised welterweight fight.

"In the last hour, Mike Towell died. You will always be in our hearts", wrote in a statement released on the night of Friday to Saturday St Andrews Sporting Club.
The Boxer died in hospital as a result of a 'serious bleeding and swelling in his brain', 12 hours after disconnecting the system that kept him alive, as explained in a post on Facebook by his girlfriend, Chloe Ross.

The young woman said that Towell had been suffering headaches in recent weeks and that they thought that they were specific stress migraines.

Ross, who said he had "with a completely broken heart", also added that the Boxer "fought until the end".

In the statement of the sports club, the rival of Towell on the ring, Dale Evans, described the deceased as "a true Warrior" and added: "I am devastated and all my thoughts are with Mike and his family".
