We are very, very sad to report that Japanese 21 year old Tesshin Okada (0-1) has passed away following his December 20th bout with Masafumi Kamiyama (1-0, 1).
Okada, who was stopped in the 4th round of his professional debut was, was announced dead earlier today whilst still in hospital following his debut bout. Sadly Okada collapsed following the bout and never recovered consciousness. He was taken to hospital in a critical condition where he remained until earlier today.
Whilst in hospital Okada was treat for an acute subdural hematoma though unfortunately his treatment didn't manage to save his life.
We at Asian Boxing are sending our prayers out to Tesshin's family and friends.
