ORLANDO, Fla. — A 34-year-old Atlanta kickboxer has died after she was knocked unconscious during an amateur tournament in Orlando over the weekend.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday that Adrienne Simmons was participating in the International Kickboxing Match held at a hotel Sunday. During the final third round, she was hit with a left hook that knocked her unconscious.

The fight was stopped and a doctor tended to her. She was taken to a hospital where she was treated for two days before dying.

A sheriff's office spokeswoman says the death is considered an accident.

The tournament was sponsored by the International Kickboxing Federation.
