German boxer Musa Yamak, 38 has sadly died in the ring during a fight with Ugandan Hamz Wandera. German media reports that Yamak was about to start the third round when he suddenly collapsed after suffering a heart attack and could not be revived.
Yamak turned pro in 2017 and he won the WBFI title by knock out against Siarhei Huliakevich in November 2021.
No announcement has been made on the cause of the heart attack, it is not known if he sustained a serious blow to the chest or if some other cause was responsible for the heart attack. Yamak is the latest in an ever-growing and concerning number of current and former sports stars in good physical shape dying from heart attacks and other cardiac-related events, many in the middle of competing in sporting events.
