The 19-year-old was taken to the Provincial Complex Hospital in Czarnow, undergoing surgery on his brain after collapsing in the third round of his under-81kg fight against Estonia’s Anton Winogradow.

The boxer was said to have been "fighting for his life" as doctors struggled to save him before announcing his death more than a week after the shocking incident.

"It is with deep sadness that we learned of the passing of Rashed Al-Swaisat of Jordan, who had been admitted to hospital on April 16 further to his fight during the AIBA YWCHs," the AIBA said in a statement.
