Next few hours critical for Oscar Gonzalez

The next several hours are critical for featherweight boxer Oscar Gonzalez, who lies in a hospital in Mexico displaying partial brain activity as a result of injuries he suffered during Saturday's 10th-round stoppage loss in to Jesus Galicia in Mexico City, according to ESPN Deportes.

Upon her arrival on Sunday, Gonzalez's wife, Magaly Avalos, was informed by a physician that only "part of" the fighter's brain is working, according to the report. El Nuevo Dia reported Gonzalez to be "in a coma" and "in serious condition."

Avalos will reportedly spend at least until Monday determining how to proceed medically regarding her husband.

Event promoter Canelo Promotions provided a statement to RingTV.com.

"We're are very concerned and we are praying for Oscar's health," said Jose "Chepo" Reynoso of Canelo Promotions. "Everybody is praying for Oscar and we hope that he recuperates."
