The Wiking-Boxteam posted the following statement on Facebook:
Our team captain Eddy is currently still in London at the hospital. His condition is referred to by doctors as stable and his organs are working normally. He is intubated and is constantly monitored whether the possibility of normality is given. Unfortunately, we have to be patient. Forecasts and assumptions can go in all directions and bring nothing at all. Possible consequential damages can not be excluded by the doctors after such a serious injury. It is very difficult for the family, with this situation. It is constantly and immediately present someone from the family is with him, if necessary.
All are deeply touched. The entire Wiking Box Team suffers with Eddy and is affected by the lasting impressions. But we also know that we are talking about boxing and like all high-performance sports, and in addition to the joy of competition and the ceremony at the victory, unfortunately, always the risk of injury is present.
Eddy has his dream of boxing against George Groves and again to reach for the world champion crown realized. Now he has to wake up from his dream and mobilize its forces for a full recovery, so he can be there for his family again.
Eddy you can do it!
Eddy you’re strong!
Eddy you battle your health!
The entire Wiking Box Team is with the heart and the thoughts every minute and at any time at our Eddy. We will continue to fight and fight for Eddy on. We love the boxing, the fight and the sporting challenge!
Sincerely, Your Wiking Box Team
