Jordan Cole, a Scottish Muay Thai boxer, has died following a training routine in Bangkok.
It is believed Jordan from the Falkirk area had been training wearing a heavy sweat suit as he attempted to lose weight for a forthcoming fight.
His trainer Kritchai Kritnok claimed he needed to lose three kilograms to make the weight for his next bout. Jordan, who was only 19, was thought highly of and was described a gentleman inside and outside. Jordan was passionate about Muay Thai and moving to the Kingdom to chase his dream.
Medics at the Maharat Nahhon Ratchasima hospital said he died from shock to his system due to dehydration and overheating. Many have paid tribute to the lad saying he was an inspiration and always had a smile on his face.
A full autopsy will be carried in due course to confirm the cause of death. Love Pattaya would like to offer our sincerest condolences to Jordan’s family and loved ones.
