Afrizal Cotto (born as Muhammad Afrizal) finally passed away today, April 4, around 5AM local time at UKI Christian University Hospital in Jakarta, Indonesia. Afrizal was immediately brought to the hospital Saturday night after a 12 round decision loss to Irvan Barita Marbun for Afrizal’s super featherweight national title. The doctors decided to conduct brain surgery to remove a blood clot shown by the CT Scan result. Afrizal remained unconscious after the surgery until he passed away. Sadly, he planned to use his fight purse for his wedding day scheduled for April 15.
