Magomed Abdusalamov in Medically Induced Coma

Russian puncher Magomed Abdusalamov took a turn for the worse earlier this morning. On Saturday night, Magomed (18-1, 18KOs) suffered numerous injuries during his ten round decision loss to Cuba's Mike Perez (20-0, 12KOs) at the Theater in New York's Madison Square Garden. There were plenty of power punches thrown and landed by both fighters in their HBO televised showcase, but Perez racked up the points to win on scores of 97-92, 95-94 and 97-92.

Earlier today, BoxingScene.com reported that during the fight Magomed broke his left hand, broke his nose and he was taken to a local hospital where a small blood clot was discovered on the brain. 

Late last night, Magomed's manager, Boris Grinberg, told BoxingScene the fighter was doing fine after doctors tended to his injuires. But a few hours later the boxer began to complain of bad headaches and was feeling ill. Doctors at Roosevelt Hospital placed him in a medically induced coma to reduce the possibility of any serious complications stemming from the blood clot. 

Magomed's exact condiction won't be known until Monday. His promoter, Sampson Lewkowicz, is on his way to Thailand for the WBC's convention and is unavailable for comment.

[QUOTE=WilkinsOlajuwon]Its a bit naive to blame the corner or ref for not stopping the fight. Benjy did a fine job except for that terrible point deduction. Mago was landing BOMBS here and there into the late rounds and I think even won the 9th..so its easy to look back and say it should have b...

[QUOTE=New England] it was impossible to know that abdusalamov was going to be in such bad shape. i thoguht the fight should be stopped around round nine,and wouldn't let him go out after 10 if it was a 12 round fight. the damage could have very well been done before then. i would have saved ...

Watched the fight Sunday morning and was elated on how great a fight this turned out to be. I've followed Abdusalamov for several years and have marveled his entertaining 'fan friendly' style, even though it was evident, that this kind of style usually doesn't allow career longevity... Thought...
