Boxer Oscar Diaz is awake and breathing on his own, two months after suffering life-threatening brain injuries in a bout with Delvin Rodriguez.

Diaz was in critical condition but has now been updated to stable, and his doctors and family are optimistic he will continue to improve.

"It's very exciting to see Oscar open his eyes. He's a fighter and I believe he will get better," his mother, Theresa Diaz, said in a statement. Diaz's family and doctor will provide more information about his condition today.

Default Great news!

I hope he continues to improve and comes out of this OK. Hate to see any fighter get hurt to this extent. Another reminder of the danger that is ever-present in the sport.
