Roberto Duran Recovering Well, Wants To Be Discharged From Hospital

Hall of Famer Roberto 'Manos de Piedra' Durán is recovering very well after testing positive for the coronavirus.

The multi-division former world champion has recovered to the point that he wants to be discharged from the hospital, reported one of his sons.

"My dad feels great, in fact he already wants to go home," Robin Durán told a Panamanian television channel. "He has almost no symptoms and no fever."

The Panamanian boxing legend, who turned 69 on June 16, was hospitalized this week with cold symptoms and subsequent examinations determined he had the COVID-19 infection. The news immediately triggered messages of encouragement on social media supporters, athletes and celebrities from all over the world.

Robin Durán said that his father will have to stay a few more days at the hospital due to precaution due to his age and the history of one of his lungs that was injured during a car accident in Argentina 19 years ago.

"The doctors told us that his evolution has been very good and that he has been attacking the disease before it reaches the point of complications," he added to TVN Noticias.

Durán's son told sports portal JMDeportes that his father probably became infected on his birthday when he met "a lot" of people who came to congratulate him at his home in the capital. He assured that his father had respected the quarantine.

"You already know what my dad is like, it is very difficult for him to close the doors to someone, and well, on that day, which was his birthday, they wanted to greet him, it was his mistake and he paid very dearly," he said.

Duran had a brilliant career where he reached 103 victories, 70 of them by knockout, and 16 defeats.
