Angel Osuna fighting for his life following Hugo Centeno defeat

Angel Osuna is in a critical condition after losing on Friday night via a ninth round stoppage to Hugo Centeno Jr promoting the latter’s manager Joel De La Hoya to release a statement on the stricken fighter.

Last night in Indio, California, Angel Osuna suffered unfortunate, unforseen injuries after fighting nine tough rounds with JDLHmgmnt fighter Hugo Centeno, and is now fighting for his life.

We were once again reminded that boxing is not a game, and these warriors place their lives on the line every time they step into the ring. I saw eighteen young men step into the ring to fight for their livelihoods and our entertainment.

One of those young men, Angel Osuna, has not yet returned home to his family. Hugo, myself and the whole JDLH family are praying for a speedy recovery for Angel, and are keeping his family in our thoughts as well.

Stepping into the ring in the first place is a brave act, and we know Angel is fighting as hard outside the ring as he battled inside of it last night and throughout his career. Get well soon Angel.

Osuna’s injury is the latest in a spate of hospitalization’s boxing has had do endure, with the most high-profile, Magomed Abdusalamov recently being awakened from a coma.
