The flyweight star has been posting the following on Instagram recently about the battle his son is going through:
This is not a post I want to make but I would like to inform my friends and family who we are unable to reach out to. Friday morning my wife and I were transported to Denver with our little baby boy, as we were informed that he has developed Hydrocephalus. He has held stable the last few days and is still one happy baby, but will need to undergo brain surgery tomorrow. We ask that you keep Anthony in your thoughts as we pray everything goes smooth tomorrow. Thank you all for the love and support. #borgstrong
Update: Anthony’s second surgery went well but he unfortunately is having complications breathing and is hooked up to a breathing respirator. He also underwent a blood transfusion this morning along with being hooked up to an EEG machine to check for possible seizures. Tough times ahead, thank you for your continued prayers.
