The pre-fight scans showed what doctors initially thought was bleeding in the brain, but now think it is a irregularity he was born with.
â€œI was really upset and Iâ€™m not even concerned about my health .. I know Iâ€™m fine. Iâ€™m just sad I canâ€™t fight.â€
â€œThis doesnâ€™t make any sense, because heâ€™s too young,â€ White said. â€œBut itâ€™s something weâ€™re taking very seriously. Weâ€™re going to get him to a specialist as soon as we can.â€ [Yahoo]
“Obviously, Iâ€™m devastated this fight is not happening, but at the same time, Iâ€™m more concerned for Thiago and his health … Iâ€™m hoping itâ€™s a clerical error or some kind of mistake or something. This is something that has to be taken seriously because itâ€™s the brain.
â€œThis was a significant fight in my career and it would have put me back in title contention. I havenâ€™t talked to [Alves], but I talked to his coach and it was a surprise to them. Itâ€™s a thing with the commission and the doctors.â€
Terrible new, lets hope Thiago gets this issue taken care of and return to fighting.
