Good News of the Day: Blagoi Ivanov Recovered from Coma, Released from Hospital   [View Full Version]
prophecy033 » Posted 7/4/07 4:41:00AM

Earlier this year, the future of undefeated Bellator heavyweight prospect Blagoi Ivanov appeared uncertain for the most unfortunate of reasons. However, Sherdog.com is reporting that Ivanov has made a “miraculous recovery” over the past ten days, and has been released from Pirogov Hospital in Sofia, Bulgaria. Ivanov will still require treatment, but is determined to eventually fight again.

In February, Blagoi Ivanov was attending the after party of a boxing tournament when a fight broke out. Ivanov attempted to break up the fight when he and two of his friends were attacked by eight men carrying guns and knives. While his friends only suffered minor injuries, Ivanov was stabbed in the armpit, with the blade piercing his heart.

While surgery immediately following the stabbing was successful, Ivanov was placed in a medically-induced coma and remained on life support six weeks after the stabbing. At the time, his physicians did not comment on whether or not they expected him to fully recover from the attack.

Ivanov is a killer and has lots of potential. Hope the incident didn't set him back and he can pick up right where he left off.

6 weeks in a coma? Holy atrophy. I am glad to hear that he is going to live. It is going to be a long road back to fighting shape, but that means relatively little compared to surviving a knife to the heart.
