Oscar Gonzalez's Wife Provides Update on Brain Injury

By Miguel Rivera

Earlier today, several reputable outlets in Mexico reported that Oscar Gonzalez was declared brain dead in the aftermath of Saturday's brutal fight with Jesus Galicia in Polanco.

In the tenth round, Gonzalez, 23-years-old, passed out and he was quickly transported to Hospital Español in Mexico City. 
Gonzalez was immediately taken to the intensive care unit and it was discovered that he suffered a severe brain injury.

The boxer's wife, Magaly Avalos, arrived this afternoon from Tepic and she spoke directly to the neurosurgeon responsible for the health of her husband.

While her husband is in bad shape, Avalos disputes that he was declared brain dead. She was told that "part" of the boxer's brain is still functioning.

A medical decision regarding Gonzalez's future should become more clear on Monday.

"[The neurosurgeon told me that] part of his brain is working. He still has all of his vitals and his heart is working well, but we must wait at least 24 hours to find out how we're going to proceed medically," Avalos said.
