Associated Press

Former World Boxing Assn. bantamweight champion Richie Sandoval was moved out of intensive care Wednesday and may be released from the hospital in a day or two, his doctor said.

Sandoval, knocked unconscious Monday in the seventh round of his title fight against challenger Gaby Canizales, continues to show improvement, said Dr. Kazem Fathie.

Fathie said Sandoval still has some temporary amnesia and remembers little of the fight.
