Oscar Larios and Czar Amonsot both suffered brain bleeds after their losses on Saturday nights Wright-Hopkins undercard. This is not good for boxing. Are these guys to brave for there own good

Amonsot might have been... I felt he should just took a couple of steps back and picked Katsidis off as he lunged in... something his corner obviously wasn't telling him. They kept telling him slug it out.

Here's a n update on the two

The executive director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission Keith Kizer has informed Viva Sports/Manila Standard Today that Czar Amonsot “is being released from the hospital this morning.”

Kizer said that both Amonsot who lost in a brutal battle with WBO lightweight champion Michael Katisidis in a title fight in Las Vegas last Sunday and former world super bantamweight champion Oscar Larios who suffered a knockout in the tenth round by 21 year old sensation Jorge Linares both suffered “very minor subdural hematomas but nothing that was life threatening.” Kizer said the bleeds are “very minimal.”

Both fighters were to be released after a series of tests conducted by specialists at the Valley Medical Center some ten minutes away from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino where the fights took place.

Golden Boy Promotions vice president Eric Gomez was quoted by well known boxing writer Dan Rafael of ESPN as saying that Larios told him he had planned to retire after the fight.

Gomez revealed that after ringside doctors Jeff Davidson and David Watson had the two fighters sent for tests following their gruelling ring encounters, two CT Scans were conducted on Amonsot with the first being clear but the second from a different angle showed there was a “little bit of bleeding.”

Initial indications are that the Nevada State Athletic Commission won’t clear Amonsot to fight again because of stringent enforcement of regulations to protect fighters. Kizer said Amonsot was being “indefinitely suspended” because of the medical findings and will not be licensed to fight again in Nevada.
That's the risk these great warriors take in just stepping into that ring. I wish both these fighters a speedy recovery, and wish Larios a great retirement. Both guys gave game efforts, and deserve the respect of all boxing fans for making some really good fights. It's scary to think of the consequences boxing can have, but you just have to hope that the ring doctors do a good job, and that the ref knows when to stop fights. Also, the corner needs to know when to stop fights as well. This is not to say that the doctors did a bad job this weekend, or that the corners did a bad job either. It's just a general comment about responsibility in this sport. If anything, Katsidis should of been the one stopped with those horrible cuts and swelling by the eye. However, from being in the ring, boxers know the risk. That's what makes these guys warriors. Anybody who can step between those ropes has my respect
Bad as this sounds all the best Aussie fighters can crack like fuck.

Vic, Rocky, Green, Briggs can all crack like a sledgehammer. Even a non puncher like Mundine has got some pretty impressive power.
Problem with Katsidis and Vic... well....

Katsidis' face was a mess after fighting a 21-year-old guy. Vic was knocked out cold. They may have devastating power but I think they should box more.

Is it possible that this is the result of Nevada issuing thicker gloves for every division under welterweight?

D0 you mean because guys who may be knocked out with lighter Gloves go on to take more punishment? If so I think you may have a point.
I was VERY glad to hear that. Czar is only 21 and he's got some good skills....He gave Katsidis a helluva fight and there is no shame in losing to him.

What would you do if you were him? Would you retire or fight on? It is really scary for someone only 21 do get a scare like this early in his career.
Retirement is the only option for him. It is not worth putting your life at risk for the paydays he will get. I know everytime you fight you are at risk but something like this makes it even riskier.

The Nevada State Athletic Commision suspended all three fighters... Amonsot and Larios Indefenitely, I have a bad feeling that Amonsot will continue fighting in the Philippines, and Katsidis until Spetember 20.
