By Salvador Rodriguez

Oscar Gonzalez, 23-years-old, officially passed away on Monday afternoon - 37 hours after arriving in the intensive care unit of the Espanol Hospital of Mexico City. Gonzalez suffered a severe brain injury on Saturday night in his fight with Jesus Galicia at the Polanco Forum. Gonzalez fainted during the tenth round and was immediately taken away by a medical crew.

While on Sunday there was confusion over whether or not the boxer was diagnosed as being brain dead - that determination was made official, earlier today, by the medical facility. Although efforts were made, doctors has warned his family since Sunday night that Gonzalez's body was rejecting the drugs that they were administering.

The boxer had previously talked to his wife and told her that if this kind of situation ever happened, he did not want to be kept alive artificially. His body will be moved to Tepic, where he would be cremated, according to reports provided by Canelo Promotions, who are taking care of all of the expenses associated with the boxer's funeral.
