GGG is back, but the weekend had some tragic news, too.

Miss anything from this weekend? We’ll catch you up.

Top Stories

Sadly, the most important stories of the weekend are nothing to do with Gennadiy Golovkin’s return or anything else, but two scary injuries to veteran fighters.

Zab Judah was admitted to the hospital after his Friday loss to Cletus Seldin, suffering from a brain bleed. Star Boxing say the 41-year-old Judah is awake, communicating, and making progress, and that’s all good news.

The same goes out to Mexican super flyweight Felipe Orucuta, who is in an even scarier situation. The fighter collapsed in the ring after a TKO loss in Mexico on Friday night, and had to undergo emergency surgery to remove a blood clot in his brain. The surgery was successful, and Orucuta, 33, is now in an induced coma.

Hopefully both of these men will make full and speedy recoveries. All of us send our best to them.
