Jo Jo Dan to be released from hospital after broken jaw surgery

Canada-based Romanian fighter and WBC silver championship welterweight challenger Jo Jo Dan will be released on Tuesday from University Hospital in Trabzon, Turkey. On Sunday, surgeons successfully repaired his broken jaw, suffered Saturday night in round two of his close 12 round UD loss (113-112, 113-112, 115-111) to Selcuk Aydin. Gankor Promotions’ Chris Ganescu opined, “Our brave boxer fought a very competitive, action packed thrilling bout in front of 5000 mostly local fans of current WBC silver champion, Selcuk Aydin.” Although speech was difficult, Jo Jo Dan was able to say today: “If the jaw break hadn’t happened, I would have defeated Aydin. I was immediately aware of my injury but I felt I could continue and win the fight anyway. The official scores proved me wrong but I certainly came close.”

Dan will fly to Romania on Wednesday, November 30th for a well deserved vacation with his family. He is scheduled to land in Bucharest at 18:30 on a Turkish Airlines flight from Istanbul. Ganescu added, “Jo Jo will certainly be out of action for an extended period. I think that he can start light fitness training again at the beginning of January 2012…and in three or four months he will certainly be well enough to begin selected light boxing training. I am proud of his gladiator performance. He will be back!”
