An amateur boxer who collapsed and lost consciousness seconds after the first round of a bout in northwestern Minnesota has died, his trainer said Thursday.

Jerimiah “J.J.” Moen, a 29-year-old super-heavyweight, died Wednesday at a Grand Forks hospital after his fight Saturday in East Grand Forks against Matt “Bubba” Fowler.

“There was no devastating punch, no knockdown that would alert you, where you’d wince with a blow,” said Eddie Obregon, Moen’s longtime trainer, who saw the round as slightly in Fowler’s favor.
