Frida Wallberg Leaves Intensive Care, Now Resting

By Per Ake Persson

Frida Wallberg, according to her boyfriend and promoter Robert Stridsberg, is out of intensive care. She is still suffering from headaches mixed with nausea and is very tired - all of this is according to the doctors is expected and everything is going according to plan. Frida is resting, not talking much and on the agenda is more rest. There will be no statements, phone calls, or announcements on future plans - until she has recuperated more. On her Facebook site, Wallberg thanked everyone for their thoughts and support.

Wallberg lost her WBC super featherweight title when she was knocked out Friday evening by Diana Prazak in Stockholm. She was initially placed in an induced coma after she underwent surgery Saturday morning and then later woken up. Wallberg suffered a subdural hematoma, a bleeding between the skull and the brain. Wallberg will remain in hospital for the next few days as precaution.
Dr Robert Ludwig has been widely criticized for his handling of the fight and confirms to Expressen that Wallberg was not doing allright when he checked her the first time - but then - strangely to a layman - leaves her and it´s now Lucia Rijker who comes over to help Wallberg. Dr Ludwig says he could do nothing more but Rijker calls for a doctor and it wasn's until that moment that a stretcher arrived - apparently on wheels and too big to be carried into the ring so more time is lost - and one could see when the oxygen arrived.
There´s also many questionmarks to how Wallberg had prepared for the fight. Some say she had lost a lot of weight fast, others that she had kept a strict diet for a long time.
Bjorn Rosengren, who heads the Swedish Federation´s pro commission insists that everything went by the book with no delays outside of the stretcher incident.
