Jorge Castro in miracle recovery?

If reports from Argentina are to be believed, Jorge Castro has improved so much from an automobile accident that left him comatose and hooked up to an artificial respirator that he may be discharged from the hospital in a few days. Even more incredibly, Castro, who can now breathe on his own, says he wants to return to the ring by December and hopes to fight for a world title (days before the accident Castro won a WBA light heavyweight eliminator against Derrick Harmon).  According to the story on a website called boxeo-boxing, hospital officials did not say Castro would not fight again, deferring that decision to Castro's personal physician, Walter Quintero. Whatever the future holds for Castro, who has more wins than anyh other active boxer, Boxingtalk wishes him well in his continued recovery.
