- ST FILE

Mr Shahril Salim, who had been working towards his professional boxing debut for more than a year, was going to use "The Bull" as his nickname for the inaugural match at Marina Bay Sands on Nov 9, 2012.

He collapsed after a training session at Juggernaut Fight Club on Boat Quay on Oct 28, 2012, and was rushed to the hospital for an emergency brain operation.

He remained in a coma until early last year, and was discharged shortly after.

He had been bedridden since.
