“In the first round, it seemed like Pradip was winning. But in the second round, Steven punched him a few times,” said one of the source “Initially I thought it was just a concussion; plus there was no sign of a heart attack. He was then sent to the hospital via the ambulance. It was much later that I heard the news that he died.”
