Contreras upgraded to stable condition

Some good news has emerged out of a Los Angeles hospital, as the Associated Press reports that Ruben Contreras has been upgraded to stable condition. However, he remains in a medically induced coma at California Hospital Medical Center to protect his brain from injury. Contreras suffered seizures following a loss to Brian Viloria in Saturday's flyweight bout on the Julio Cesar Chavez undercard. --Scott Shaffer
