Young Indonesian flyweight Okson Palue (born as Okson Edison Ingamiua) died today five days after a non-televised eight-round fight with Gerry Dio Toisuta in Kupang City, Indonesia. Both fighters were involved in a short distance trading punches during the match which ended as a draw. After the match everything looked OK. Palue supported his stablemate Tommy Seran who defended his WBO Asia Pacific light flyweight title against Philippines’ Fernando Ocon before suddenly he fell down complaining about a foot cramp. The doctors on duty immediately handled Palue, and brought him to the nearest hospital. After awhile at the hospital, Palue felt OK, and insisted to return home. On Monday morning Palue again complained about the pain on one of his legs, so he was rushed to the hospital and stayed in the hospital until the sad news spread up on Wednesday morning. There’s not yet any official information about the cause of his death. “We’re all sad about this incident. At this moment, we’re trying to compile all necessary documents in order to claim to the insurance company,” said Syarifudin Lado, the matchmaker of the show, as quoted by pp-pertina.com.
