As per the department, “While Colon’s medical condition following the contest against Williams is tragic, there is not one action so apparent and/or egregious to justify laying blame to any one person.”

But Prichard’s parents disagreed with this statement and they filed a $50 million lawsuit against the promoters of Colon’s fight. Whereas, John Stiller one of the chief neurologists for the Maryland State Athletic Commission also stated with ESPN that “The fight should have been stopped at that moment [in the seventh round], and I still cannot think of a medically sound reason it wasn’t,”

This issue is because the money that Prichard gonna need is huge and he is unable to make many things by himself, also he will need an intensive care unit throughout his life as per doctors.

Talking with The Washington Post Terrell Williams said that he will explain everything about the incident that happened that day with his three sons “When they figure it out, I’ll talk to them about it. And I’ll be honest.”
