Al Franco, father and trainer of fallen warrior Daniel “Twitch” Franco, has issued an update on his son’s status.
“My boy is fighting strong, he is holding his fever down to 99 and is fighting hard. He will be kept in this coma for a few more days. The pressure in his brain is also under control thus far. Everything that we could ask for to go our way in this situation is. Please keep praying and thank you all for sharing and donating. I’m in debt and humbled by you all.”
So far, boxing fans have contributed $13,308 via a “Go Fund Me” account to help with Daniel’s current and future expenses. Franco will likely be hospitalized for weeks or months before he’s able to return to California. If you want to help, click here.
