Fernando Montiel Denies That He Suffered a Facial Fracture
By Jhonny Gonzalez
The former WBC and WBO bantamweight champion, Fernando 'Kochulito' Montiel, denied reports that he suffered a facial fracture as a result of last Saturday's knockout loss to Nonito Donaire in Las Vegas. In press conference held Montiel's hometown of Los Mochis, Sinaloa in Mexico, the boxer clarified speculations with respect to the state of his health.
"I'm calm. A person learns from his defeats. I had no facture and I wasn't in a coma, or anything like that. I am already turning over to the next page. It's a very heavy page, but I have to do it," Montiel said. "You see, I have to admit that I was badly hurt by that shot. The fight was stopped at the right time because I wasn't capable of thinking at 100% or even 50%, or doing what had to be done. I believe that I'm going to rise from this and I will be a world champion again."
As previously reported on BoxingScene.com, Montiel is expected to return to the ring in three to four months.
That's great if he does not need surgery. I think when he wins his next fight he'll want a rematch with Donaire.Comment by simonsez02 on 02-23-2011
