Flyweight Karlo Maquinto, 21, died in hospital on Friday, Dr Chester Tan, a surgeon at Manila's Far Eastern University Hospital told AFP. The right-hander, fighting only his ninth bout as a professional boxer, was taken to hospital last Saturday after rallying from two early knockdowns to salvage a majority draw against fellow Filipino Mark Joseph Costa. Maquinto, 8-0-1 with six wins by knockout, collapsed after the four-round bout in northern Manila. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus. blog comments powered by Disqus
