De 28-jarige Welterweight vechter Joao Carvalho heeft afgelopen zaterdagnacht gevochten tegen Straight Blast Gym vechter Charlie Ward. Een partij die in de derde ronde met technische knock-out werd beëindigd. Het medische team van Total Extreme Fighting is na een onderzoek gelijk naar het Beaumont ziekenhuis gereden. Hier is Carvalho geopereerd aan zijn hersens en is vervolgens onder kritische omstandigheden 48 uur lang verzorgd. Joao Carvalho overlijdt op maandag om 21:35.

Lees hier het statement van de promotie Total Extreme Fighting:

The TEF Team is deeply saddened by the news of João Carvalho’s death. Last night 11th of April, mixed martial artist João Carvalho passed away after 2 days of the best medical care and treatment in Beaumont Hospital following his three round TKO stoppage defeat on Saturday 9th April at the National Stadium in Dublin.

Following the referee stoppage João, who was representing Portuguese club Team Nobrega, was assessed by doctors and medical staff at the onsite medical office as per normal procedure. It was determined that he should be sent to hospital. In hospital he received emergency treatment and transferred to ICU later that evening. Formal hospital medical reports and procedures are still being carried out. João was 28 years of age.

Cesar Silva, CEO of TEF said “We extend our most sincere condolences to the family of João Carvalho’s and his teammates in Team Nobrega. Our thoughts and prayers are with them. We’d also like to thank all sports fans for their concern and support. We will give whatever support we can to Joao’s family.”

“We have been in contact with his family and they have requested that we all understand their need for privacy at this difficult time.”

Ook de coach van zijn tegenstander John Kavanagh reageert op het nieuws:

It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the passing of Portuguese fighter Joao Carvalho. On Saturday, April 9, the fighter suffered a medical issue following his three round TKO stoppage loss at a Total Extreme Fighting (TEF) Championship event at the National Stadium in Dublin Ireland. IAPA is working diligently with TEF to gather and evaluate all relevant facts and event processes and will participate in any investigation. Our condolences and thoughts, though, are with Joao’s family and friends and we kindly ask everyone to respect their privacy at this time.
