The cousin of the boxing several-times-champion Lucian Bute, who was given a beating on Sunday in front of a dancing club in Pechea, Galati County, took a turn for the better and doctors argue a surgical intervention is no longer needed. “The patient Gelu Bute is recovering. He regained consciousness, but is still a bit confused. The patient was lucky,” Dr. Nicolae Bacalbasa, the spokesman for the “Sfantu Andrei” Emergency Clinical Hospital in Galati, where Lucian Bute’s cousin was checked in, stated. At the same time, representatives of the Galati Police say all the attackers of the 23-year-old were identified and five people were found to have been involved.
