Statement released on trainer Virgil Hunter after ‘health scare’

Andre Ward’s trainer Virgil Hunter is recovering after suffering what his family have described as a ‘health scare’ recently.

Hunter, who also trains Amir Khan, was hospitalized but is said to be doing well and ‘healing’ – possibly following surgery (but not confirmed).

A statement read as follows: “Trainer Virgil Hunter experienced a health scare this week and was hospitalized.

“We are happy to report that he is recovering and getting stronger every day.

“We appreciate everyone’s thoughts and prayers and request that his privacy be respected while he recovers.

“There will not be any further statements made at this time as we allow him to heal.”
