A CITY nightclub has vowed to never host a boxing match again in memory of a man who died following an event at the venue, an inquest heard.

Dominic Chapman died while fighting in an Ultra White Collar Boxing event (now Ultra Events) at Tramps nightclub on April 9 last year.

Nightclub manager Nathan Tinker  said: "I would like to offer my sympathy and condolences towards the family. I am deeply upset with what happened.

"In Dominic's memory, we will not be holding any more boxing events or any of that type in future."

He added that he was "on the door" when the incident occurred and he was not aware of the seriousness of Mr Chapman's injuries until police had arrived at the club at around 8pm. 

The 26-year-old  collapsed in the ring after the bout with James Bradley, which had aimed to raise money for Cancer Research.

He later died in hospital.

Worcestershire Coroners Court heard more details on the circumstances behind Mr Chapman's death today (Wednesday), which marked the second day in court.

Coach Piotr Ptasinski, owner of Iron Fight Club in Worcester, initially thought Mr Chapman collapsed because he was "tired" from the bout.

He said: "It was the end of the third round, and I noticed Dominic collapse - not heavily, but he sat down and then lay down in the ring," he said.

"It was not like he lost consciousness. He just collapsed and lay on the floor.

"I remember thinking he's just tired after his bout."

He added that he did not go to Mr Chapman's side immediately as he didn't want to overcrowd him.

The inquest, which is expected to last another four days, continues.
