Robert Lee, head of the International Boxing Federation said he has instructed his medical advisory council to examine last weekend's junior bantamweight title bout in Texas to determine if the use of six-ounce gloves should be banned. Kid Akeem Anifowoshe, a Nigerian living in Las Vegas, began vomiting blood and collapsed after losing a 12-round unanimous decision Saturday to Robert Quiroga at San Antonio.

Kid Akeem Anifowoshe regained consciousness Sunday after surgery to relieve pressure on his brain following a loss to International Boxing Federation junior bantamweight champion Robert Quiroga at San Antonio. Quiroga, 20, also was bloody and bruised but retained his crown by unanimous decision. Anifowoshe had fallen into a coma after the 12-round decision was announced. Trainers said the boxers' use of six-ounce gloves, which provide high punch impact, contributed to their injuries.

Kid Akeem Anifowoshe, who lapsed into a coma after losing a bloody International Boxing Federation junior bantamweight title fight last week in San Antonio, has shown dramatic improvement and has not lost any of his mental faculties, his doctor said. "It's a surprise for him to survive," Dr. Gerardo Zavala said. "When he came to the hospital, I thought he was going to be dead. Now it looks like his mental faculties are there. I think everything is going to be OK."

The fourth defense of his International Boxing Federation super-flyweight title, Julio Cesar Borboa says, will be strange. Tonight at the Forum, Borboa (21-4, 19 knockouts) will fight Jorge Luis Roman, the younger brother of Borboa's idol, Gilberto Roman, a two-time world champion who died in a car accident three years ago. "I know fighting his brother, it's going to be weird, especially early on," Borboa said through a translator. "But a fight's a fight."
