Burgos out of coma

Victor Burgos, who needed emergency brain surgery to remove a blood clot following his loss to Vic Darchinyan last Saturday, has come out of the medically-induced coma he was in, and is responding to doctors at UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, CA.

According to Don King's head of public relations, Alan Hopper, Burgos' condition appears to be improving, as the flyweight fighter responded to verbal commands.

For now, he remains in the ICU, but all signs are pointing toward a full recovery.
