Colombian boxer Carlos Meza died Tuesday, four days after being knocked out in the ring, according to boxing officials. Meza, 26, never regained consciousness after being knocked out in the 12th round of a bantamweight bout against Ricardo Cordoba in the Atlantic port city of Colon.

Dr. Winston Grenald, the boxing commission's physician, said Meza had died as a result of a coma induced by three skull fractures and the accumulation of fluid on the brain.

Doctors had declared Meza brain dead, and said they were only waiting for vital signs to cease in order to issue a formal death certificate.

Meza, ranked 14th by the World Boxing Association, had an operation Saturday to ease swelling from cerebral bleeding.

What a shame, just 26 years old.
