Former TU Linebacker Dies After Unsanctioned Boxing Event At Tulsa Church

| September 23, 2011

TULSA, Oklahoma — Former Tulsa Golden Hurricane linebacker George Clinkscale died Wednesday night after participating in an unsanctioned amateur boxing match held at Guts Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The fights are targeted to young adults 18 – 30 years old, and promoted online as part of their "Sub 30" ministry.

GUTS held Wednesday's match in the parking lot and promoted it with billboards, but it passed under the radar of the state authorities who oversee amateur boxing.

Now they're looking into the death of Clinkscale, who within minutes of his match was critically ill and died shortly after arriving at St. Francis Hospital.

According to a press release sent out by Guts Church, Clinkscale began cramping during his fight and asked EMSA personnel that were on site for IV hydration.
