September, 16th is a huge day for boxing in Las Vegas, with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez facing Gennady “GGG” Golovkin in a must-win contest for the king of the middleweight division. As boxing’s elite descend on the Las Vegas Strip, the Raging Babes of Boxing will once again gather to network, laugh and bond over brunch.
The boxing community and the World Boxing Council feel sorrow for the health status of Prichard Colon, aged 23, who registers one hundred days in a coma since his fight with Terrell Williams, last October 17 at the Eagle Bank Arena in Fairfax, Virginia.
Prichard received many blows to the back of his head- impacts in the boxing media known as “rabbit punches”. An action prohibited in our sport, since in this area “the medulla oblongata” it lays at the base of the skull, and is relatively unprotected. This region is where the spine joins the brainstem.
Puerto Rican welterweight, Prichard Colon, is showing small signs of improvement after undergoing surgery to relieve pressure on the brain, following his Oct. 17 fight with Terrell Williams, promoter Lou DiBella has revealed.
Colon was taken ill backstage after the PBC fight with Williams, vomiting and complaining of dizziness before collapsing and being rushed to Inova Fairfax Hospital, where he underwent emergency surgery and slipped into the coma he remains in.
Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment: “Prichard Colon became symptomatic in his dressing room following his bout with Terrel Williams Saturday afternoon at EagleBank Arena in Fairfax, VA. Within moments, he was under the care of EMTs and was rushed to Inova Fairfax Hospital. He suffered a brain bleed as a result of an injury during the bout and underwent immediate surgery to relieve pressure on his brain. His condition remains critical. Prichard’s family has requested that their privacy be respected at this time. Updates will be provided when appropriate. We ask that everyone join us in praying for Prichard and his family.”
