Indian-origin bodybuilder dies after Thai kick-boxing match in Singapore

Indian-origin bodybuilder dies after Thai kick-boxing match in Singapore”

Police said they were investigating the death.

The fight, which took place during the Asia Fighting Championship (AFC), was originally meant to be a match between Singapore Idol alumnus Sylvester Sim and Lim. "I would also like to say we are saddened by the loss for the family".

Pradip was cremated at the Mandai Crematorium last evening after a wake at his Woodlands home attended by more than 350 friends, relatives and members of the fight and bodybuilding fraternity.

"Two to four guys lifted Pradip out".

Exhibition Match-Up fighter and President of the World Bodybuilding and Physique Sports Federation of Singapore (WBPF), Pradip Subramanian, died at the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) Saturday. "I can't take it", said Subramanian's uncle, Mr Venu Gopal, 69.

"(Subramanian) was his parent's favourite son", Gopal added.

Asked if she noticed anything unusual or not right when the bout concluded with Lim as the victor, Amanda said: "After Steven won and they played the national anthem, Pradip appeared to pass out". I have not slept yet because (I am) very stressed over (Subramanian's death). "It was much later that I heard the news that he died".

However, the Youtube personality told TODAY that he had punched Sim until he bled from his mouth during a trial match, prompting the latter to withdraw from the match.

In a Facebook post, victor of the fight Lim paid tributes to Subramanian, writing, "Rest in Peace, my really truly respected fearless warrior and fighter".

Lim, who was shocked at the turn of events, said: "I thought it was just a normal (technical) knockout".

Mr Sasidharan Unnithan, 38, founder of AFC and a close friend of the deceased, told TODAY at the wake: "It was supposed to be a celebrity bout, not something that was going to hurt them".

Shortly after, Pradip was taken in an ambulance to the Singapore General Hospital (SGH), where he died at 9pm, about an hour after he stepped into the ring, said event organiser AFC Holding Singapore in a statement yesterday.
