Puerto Rican fighter Prichard Colón had a successful operation this Monday at a hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, and his mother reports that the procedure went well.
Prichard ended up with serious health consequences, after a fight in 2015. In recent weeks it was found that a collapse of his skull was pressing on the brain, for which a fragment had to be removed to be replaced by a plate.
“The doctor has already come to give the results of my son’s surgery, the CHAMPION Prichard Colón Meléndez. Everything went well. Thank you all for keeping my son in prayers for the huge messages and calls inquiring about us,” commented Nieves Meléndez, mother of Prichard, on social networks.
Prichard Colón’s immense bravery and his love for life has moved and inspired many people. A fact that earned him recognition with an honorary WBC Champion Belt a few days ago.
