Magomed Abdusalamov Suffered Stroke, on Life Support

By Mike Coppinger

Magomed Abdusalamov (18-1, 18KOs) suffered a stroke while in the hospital, Sampson Boxing vice president Nathan Lewkowicz told BoxingScene.com via text message on Tuesday.

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

Lewkowicz also told BoxingScene.com that a machine is keeping the fighter alive.

Abdusalamov has been stable in the intensive care unit of Roosevelt Hospital in New York since Sunday after suffering a small blood clot on his brain in an HBO-televised bout with Mike Perez. Abdusalamov was placed in a medically induced coma following the brutal slugfest, which he lost via unanimous decision. Abdusalamov also suffered a broken nose and a broken hand in the heavyweight fight.

The doctors want to keep the boxer in the medically induced coma for the next couple of days to improve his condition, but it appears Magomed has a long road ahead in terms of recovery.

A trust has been established to help the boxer and his family with the mounting medical bills.

"We are going to do what we need to do for Magomed. He and his family are going to need our help," Sampson Lewkowicz said in a statement released Tuesday. "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," Lewkowicz continued." 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."

I hope he pulls through, this is terrible news. I cannot believe its turned for the worst. Boxing can be such a brutal sport at times, and I myself am guilty of calling fighters quitters and cowards at times, but…
