JOSE HARO has issued a brief statement regarding the status of his fallen opponent, Daniel Franco, through his promotional representative, Whitfield Haydon:
“I respect all fighters. My heart hurts knowing that my opponent from Saturday night [June 10] is still in the hospital. I hope he has a full and speedy recovery. Nothing but love, brotha.
“We put everything on the line when we step inside the ring. I always tell my brother/trainer that I’m a father first, fighter second, and if he ever sees me badly hurt to stop the fight because my kids need their daddy. I’m very grateful that I won, but it really doesn’t feel like I won. I always pray that my opponent and myself come out of our fight in good health. Let’s go #TeamFranco, you got this!”
