WAKO, the World Association of Kickboxing Organizations, was recognized last year by the International Olympic Committee as the governing body for amateur kickboxing, one of 9 new sports under consideration for inclusion in the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics. WAKO India has, so far, made no mention of the death on their website.
Tade is the second fighter to die following a kickboxing match in India, recently. Back in July, 23-year-old Nikil Suresh died following a bout at a local event in Bengaluru. Police reportedly brought a case of negligence against the organizers of that event.
