Authorities said Joseph Collura of 540 Candlewick Court started having trouble breathing after the fight at Platinum Plus and died at Greenville Memorial Hospital.
Deputies said the investigation into the death could take weeks as authorities interview the more than 100 people in the club at the time.
Tom Selfridge, Greenville County deputy coroner, reported Friday that Collura died as a result of asphyxiation due to pressure on the neck, but he told News Channel 7 that an official cause of death would not be determined until toxicology results are returned.
Investigators said the fight appeared to start when guards tried to check Collura’s ID.
No charges have been filed in the case.
