With heavyweight Magomed Abdusalamov still hospitalized in a medically induced coma following last Saturday’s fight against Mike Perez, a trust fund is being established by promoters Lou Dibella, Leon Margules and others in the boxing industry to assist with medical care.

Abdusalamov is now on life support after undergoing emergency to alleviate brain swelling by removing a blood clot and part of the skull. The injuries occurred from the 10 brutal rounds Abdusalamov engaged in with Perez. He was in stable condition after the surgery until suffering a stroke on Tuesday.

“We are going to do what we need to do for Magomed. He and his family are going to need our help,” said Abdusalamov’s promoter Sampson Lewkowicz. “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.”

  1. A real shame, the amount of money these promoters and TV networks make form boxing they should pay for his medical bills and make sure him and his family are straight for life after boxing.

    I would of thought boxers are insured to have private medical care though?

  2. Ditto, Waterurseeds! I do believe Muhammad Ali pushed for Medical and more for fighters. I seen the fight and respect both fighters. The biggest disappointment, the doctors claim Mr. Abdusalamova will not be able to box.
