Magomed Abdusalamov on life support, fund established

Written by
A fund has been established for Magomed Abdusalamov to help lessen the weighty financial burden that has been placed on him and his family as a result of injuries he sustained Saturday night.
Abdusalamov, who dropped a unanimous decision to Mike Perez on HBO's televised portion of the Golovkin vs Stevens fight card, was hospitalized Sunday and placed in a medically-induced coma.

Sadly, he suffered a stroke and is on life support.

"We didn't want to say anything," Sampson Lewkowicz, his manager, told BoxingScene, "but someone spoke to (New York Post writer) George Willis, so I might as well confirm it."

A machine is keeping the fighter alive and it appears his road to recovery will be long and difficult.

The fighter will remain in an induced coma the next several days at Roosevelt Hospital in New York where his wife, father and three young children are keeping constant vigil.

"We are going to do what we need to do for Magomed. He and his family are going to need our help," his manager Sampson Lewkowicz told BoxingScene. "He is going to need financial assistance for the medical bills for his treatment, and for his family who are faced with an urgent financial crunch from this terrible accident."

"We cannot, as a boxing family, turn our backs on the brave men and women who compete in our sport when they need us most. We are going to do everything possible to help him get back on his feet."

"Magomed will never fight again, but he is a good man and a brave man with a nice family. We are going to make sure they all pull through this intact. That is the right thing to do. Every dollar will help."
