While Leavander Johnson remains in critical condition and in a barbiturate-induced coma, he continues to show signs of improvement and reason for optimism. He is with his family, and the response from the boxing community has been extraordinary and appreciated..

"While we are far more hopeful for Leavander's continued improvement and recovery, your prayers are important, and the family believes that prayers and good wishes are a continuing source of strength. Leavander Johnson's 16-year career as a professional fighter has been characterized by courage and the heart of a champion. He is facing this ordeal with that same champion's heart." -- Lou DiBella
