Sad news out of Mexico today, as 23-year old Marco Antonio "Texano" Nazareth passed away from complications after his fight with Omar Chavez.

The 23-year-old Nazareth was hospitalized after the fight, in which Nazareth was knocked down in the first round and knocked out in the fourth.

Nazareth underwent surgery after the fight, but his condition steadily worsened. His professional record was four victories -- three by knockout -- and four losses.

Rest in peace, Marco.
