Minakov to have surgery on his injured shoulder
Vitali Minakov of Russia will undergo surgery on his injured shoulder. On Sunday Minakov lost on points to Cheick Kongo of France in a fight at the Bellator tournament in Uncasville, Connecticut. The athlete later told that he had health problems on the eve of the fight.
“Until I decide the issue with my shoulder, my left hand, I won’t think about the next fight,” said Minakov. “The problem with the shoulder was a long time ago, since the time of preparation for the fight with Alexander Volkov, but then I could not do the surgery. The rivals see that I don’t punch with the left hand at all, so they go under it. Full recovery after such a surgery takes three months, as far as I know."
