The fight took place in Japan

23-year-old Japanese boxer Kazuki Anaguchi (6-1, 2KO) died from injuries he received in a fight for the Japanese lightweight title against Sei Tsutsumi (10-0-2, 7KO). The bout took place in Tokyo on December 26 last year on the undercard of the Naoya Inoue–Marlon Tapales show and ended by the judges' decision: 91:95, 92:94, 92:94.

The referee counted Anaguchi's knockdown four times during the fight, but the boxer survived all 10 rounds. After the fight, Anaguchi's legs began to twitch involuntarily.

The victim was rushed to the hospital, where he fainted. Doctors performed an emergency craniotomy to remove a subdural hematoma in his brain. Despite all the efforts of the doctors, Anaguchi, who had never lost a fight before, died a month later, never waking up from his coma.
