Magomed Abdusalamov Shows Signs of Improvement

By Yuri Tarantin (

Russian heavyweight Magomed Abdusalamov, who suffered career-ending injuries in his decision loss to Mike Perez; a fight where the boxer took severe punishment and spent several weeks in a medically induced coma after a brain bleed was discovered - continues to show signs of improvement with his condition.

As his wife Bakanay Abdusalamov told, Magomed recognizes relatives, understands almost everything that they are sharing with him and does his best to speak with them.

“Today when I went home I asked Magomed what he wished to tell me, and he said to me: “Good Luck”, then waited a second and added: “Drive carefully”. He speaks in a very low voice but I’ve adjusted to it, and I understand him perfectly”.
