Abdusalamov Stable After Medically Induced Coma
NEW YORK, NY –
Heavyweight prospect Magomed Abdusalamov is reportedly in stable condition following a medically induced coma after his bout with Mike Perez Saturday night in New York.
As reported by BoxingScene.com, after his defeat at the hands of Perez last night at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Abdusalamov sought treatment for a broken nose and hand suffered during the match. Upon release, Abdusalamov complained of headaches, returned to the hospital where doctors discovered a blood clot on his brain.
“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 self-induced coma to reduce the possibility of any serious complications stemming from the blood clot.”
While any injury of this nature raises concern in the boxing community, it resonates even louder occurring on the heels of the recent death of Frankie Leal.
Prayers to Magomed Abdusalamov and the hopes of a speedy recovery.
