But now his boxer Ivana Habazin confirmed that the veteran trainer should back to the hospital ASAP. Habazin revealed Bashir had now been diagnosed with an Intracerebral hemorrhage.
According to some sources the attacker was Shields’ brother, but police have not confirmed this. Shields regrets what happened and said, who says the assaulter was not from her camp.
“I don’t condone any kind of violence outside the ring. I signed up for boxing to do the boxing inside the ring. Anything outside the ring, I don’t really get involved in, and I don’t anybody associated with me to be involved in. I didn’t want to wait until the end of my career to do anything. In the midst of my career, while everything is up and great, I wanted to bring some of that hope and happiness back here to Flint. I wanted to uplift the city with everything we’re going through. It’s a huge disappointment. ” – said Claressa Shields.
