pacquiao stablemate in coma


Recommended Posts

Bantamweight boxer Z Gorres, who is part of Manny Pacquiao's stable at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood, was in critical condition at a Las Vegas hospital today after collapsing shortly after winning a fight Friday at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay.


The 27-year-old Filipino was knocked down in the 10th and final round but climbed back to his feet to win a unanimous decision over Colombian Luis Melendez. After the fight, Gorres circled the ring waving a Philippine flag. But as he was preparing to leave the ring, say spectators who were at the fight, Gorres complained that his legs felt weak, then collapsed in his corner.


Gorres (31-2-1) was given oxygen and taken from the arena on a stretcher. He was transported to University Medical Center in Las Vegas, where he underwent surgery to reduce swelling in his brain. Doctors said the boxer will be kept in a coma for several days.
