Fighter In Medically Induced Coma After Saturday Knockout

Boxer Daniel Franco has suffered two bleeding veins within his brain, following a recent knockout loss. The fighter faced off against Jose Haro inside the WinnaVegas Casino in Sloan, Iowa. Shortly after the fight, Daniel Franco was placed in a medically induced coma due to his injuries.

As reported by Kevine Iole in Yahoo Sports,

“Franco, 25, suffered two bleeds on the brain after being knocked out by Haro in the eighth round of a bout at the WinnaVegas Casino in Sloan, Iowa. Per his father, Al, Franco was bleeding from two veins in his brain. He underwent emergency surgery and is in a medically induced coma.

The next 72 hours will be critical, though signs are promising.

‘He’s truly a remarkable young man,” said Bernie Bahrmasel, who has served as Franco’s publicist for the last two years. “He comes from a wonderful family and he’s really just a great kid.'”
