Default How is Bobby Czyz doing these days?

Does anyone know how Bobby Czyz is doing now? I know he was hospitalized for a very bad car accident. Has Bobby been released from the hospital...is he ok?

Czyz was a fine fighter in his prime.

I spoke to Bobby about 10 days ago. He's doing much better. Great sense of humor as usual.

Bobby was actually released from the hospital last May. His recovery was quicker than anticipated considering that he had been induced into a coma while he was in the hospital. To be sure, the medical bills were substantial, and a benefit was held on his behalf in September. Larry Holmes, Joe Frazier, and Chuck Wepner were part of it.

I'm glad to hear that. There were no articles about Bobby in the media following the announcement that he was in the hospital, so I was worried.

Bobby has experienced more than his fair share of problems, but he's tough and will hang in there.

Regarding Bobby as a fighter, I think the best thing to say is that his best weight was 175, but he had a 68" reach and the best tool in his ****nal was actually his jab.

He has a long-standing alcohol problem I think.

Does anyone know what kind of injuries Czyz sustained, and what the long term affects of these injuries are? I assume he's mobile and walking around at least.

He made a quicker recovery than expected. He was mobile and walking around not too long after his release. No major, lasting damage. He's as agile-minded as ever.
