Ukrainian former WBC light heavyweight champion Oleksandr Gvozdyk was released from a Philadelphia hospital this morning (Oct. 21).

Gvozdyk underwent a battery of tests because he complained of pain in the back of his head. The boxer spent two nights at Temple University Hospital after a loss to Artur Beterbiev in a championship match on Oct. 18,  Boxing Scene reported.

Citing Teddy Atlas, Gvozdyk’s trainer, the article reports that Gvozdyk suffered a minor concussion from hits to the back of the head.

“All is clear,” Atlas said. “No [brain] bleed or anything.”
