Mark Fowler dies Sydney. A British Thai kick-boxing champion has died during a fight in Sydney, prompting calls for tighter regulation of the sport. Mark Fowler, 35, collapsed in front of spectators after fighting five rounds on Saturday night and failed to regain consciousness. He died on Monday afternoon of head injuries. Mr Fowler, a British citizen who lived in Australia, was the World Boxing Council (WBC) Muay Thai Lightweight champion for New South Wales.

Graham Annesley, the New South Wales sports minister, has ordered an inquiry into the death, which occurred after a NSW World Muay Thai Council event in Sydney's south-west.

"I have also instructed the Office of Communities to implement any additional precautions considered necessary to ensure all similar upcoming events fully comply with current legislation and safety requirements," Mr Annesley said.

The death will also be investigated by the coroner.
