The head of the Mexico City Boxing Commission, José Alfredo Isselín Cardona, expressed his sorrow over the recent death of hometown boxer, Martín "Bombero" Sánchez and, according to Notimex reports, announced that the commission will donate 25,000 pesos to Sanchez’s family. Isselín Cardona also indicated that he would conduct an investigation into why Sanchez was apparently allowed to skip an annual medical exam before his last fight, a loss to Rustam Nugaev of Russia that cost Sanchez his life in Las Vegas, Nevada this past weekend. Sanchez collapsed in the locker room after the fight, and died shortly thereafter. The Mexican boxer traveled to Las Vegas without obtaining the commission’s medical approval or renewing his boxing license since 2004. The Notimex report says that Sánchez did not undergo the commission’s annual medical examinations, such as blood tests, electrocardiograms, neurological tests and a sufficient eye exam, something he said he would do on returning from the US. The commission’s most recent tests were dated March 29, 2004. After that, Sanchez defeated Miguel Angel Galindo in April 2004 in one round and then lost a decision to Carlos Garcia in June 2005.
