* Perro Aguayo Jr. died due to a neck injury at a The Clash event in 2015 after taking Wrestling/ReyMysterioJr's 619, the same 619 he had been doing nearly 300 days a year for a decade before hand. Mysterio actually noticed something was wrong with Aguayo while doing the move and avoided hitting him, though Aguayo took a drop kick to the ropes to set it up immediately beforehand.

* In 1956's ''The Harder They Fall'', Humphrey Bogart's last film, Max Baer plays bloodthirsty boxer Buddy Brannen, a character based on himself. After another boxer dies in a match with Toro Moreno (whose character was based on Primo Carnera), Brannen is intent on proving that ''he'', who badly injured the boxer in his previous match, is really responsible for the death.

* The ''[[Literature/TheSaint Saint]]'' story "The Masked Angel" has a boxer die in the ring while being beaten up by a rival, all of whose opponents have mysteriously fought very poorly. It is eventually revealed that the killer boxer's manager was applying a drug to the man's gloves [[PoisonousFriend without his knowledge]] that entered his opponents' bloodstreams when their skin was broken and sedated them. The death, however, is explicitly described as entirely due to physical injuries and not the drug.

Ten seconds, and our boxer is down for the count. He's knocked out, but he'll get back on his feet eventually, right? No, he won't. He's crippled for life, if he's not outright dead. You can stop applauding the victor now. Deaths like this might seldom happen in RealLife, but it's none the less TruthInTelevision.

** This incident not only cost Duk-koo Kim his life, but also that of his mother (who committed suicide), that of the ring referee (who also committed suicide). It also ended the career of Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini--he was so shocked from the death of his WorthyOpponent that he gave up boxing altogether.
