Following last week’s attack, there has been an overflow of support for middleweight Kotto Brazil. MLW locker room and fans alike have taken to social media to send their love and encouragement for the “Haitian Sensation”. Finally today, freshly released from the hospital, Brazil broke his silence with the following tweet:

Brazil suffered extensive damage to his eye including the retina, optic disc and conjuntiva area. The belief is that the glassware exploded upon impact creating debris that got impacted in and around the eye.

MLW’s medical team is in contact with Brazil’s doctors. It is unclear if Brazil will need to have enucleation (a procedure where the eye is removed).  

An investigation is on-going and MLW wishes Brazil a speedy recovery.
