MILWAUKEE (AP) – An autopsy on the body of an amateur kick-boxer who died after collapsing in the ring at a Milwaukee event has been completed.

But police have asked the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office not to disclose the results while officers investigate the death of 24-year-old Dennis Munson. He lost a three-round fight at the Eagles Club Grand Ballroom and collapsed Friday night. He was given oxygen and taken to a nearby hospital where he died early Saturday.

The chief of officials for the fight’s promoter, Knockout Kings, tells the Journal Sentinel there were no debilitating strikes to the head or body during Munson’s fight with Mike Vang. Cheryl Clancy says Munson appeared conscious, but his eyes were glassy and he was uncommunicative, so an ambulance rushed him to the hospital.
