In 2010, the current directors of our organization came together to create “Veterans Boxing Foundation of NY, Ring 10″ to give those of you who are interested the opportunity to help those in need. We are thrilled to report that we are in our fourth year of serving the boxing community and its members.
Ring 10 originated from the idea of helping all those who have found themselves at a disadvantage. Since our organization was established, we have endeavored to provide help and assistance where the need is greatest, and will continue to do so as long as we are able.
Unlike other major sports that have a union to represent the athlete, professional boxers have no such safety net. Even without a union it is hard to believe that legendary fighters such as Mickey Walker, Sandy Saddler, Kid Gavilan, Ken Norton and Joe Frazier would not be taken care of by the organized boxing establishment when they fell on hard times after retiring from the ring. But, unfortunately, that is the case. We are proud to say that Ring 10 of NY is stepping up and making a difference with assistance and contributions to all impoverished and/or ailing fighters (regardless of background or origin). Our goal is simple: to help retired boxers who are in need.
You can support our cause by making a donation or becoming a member at the bottom of this page. We are a non-profit charity with ALL monies, and we mean ALL, going to the fighters we support. One hundred percent of your tax deductible membership fees and donations go towards helping all indigent former fighters. None of your donation dollars go to any members or directors of Ring 10. It is all voluntary. We are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. You can also support Ring 10 by following us on FB, Twitter and Instagram to help spread our mission, @ring10ny.
Ring 10 continues to accept donations that will go directly to Magomed Abdusalamov and his family. To donate click on the donate button at the bottom of this page.
On December 31st, Magomed was hospitalized for sepsis and osteomyelitis, as doctors also attempted to treat recurring pressure ulcers in his lower back. He was bedridden and endured lung and urinary tract infections and surgery on a lesion.
“But we always try to stay positive. We pray and hope for the best, as this is Mago, after all, and he is always a fighter,” said his wife, Bakanay.
Magomed recently returned home after the hospitalization to treat the above infections. With his 34th birthday less than four weeks away, the former title contender is again resuming a rehabilitation regimen, a family spokesman said.
“Once again, I want to thank those who did not forget about Magomed, who continue to support and pray for him. We are eternally grateful for the staff and doctors at Helen Hayes and Mt. Sinai Roosevelt Hospitals for all of their efforts,” said Bakanay Abdusalamova, who also expressed appreciation to the Ring 10 Charity for its support and to everyone who has been helping the family during its ordeal.
Ring 10 would like to thank those of you who donated selflessly to this family. Your assistance will give them greater peace of mind at this challenging time. One hundred percent of your generosity has directly benefited The Abdusalamov Family. Thank you for making a difference in helping one of our Brothers.
Let us continue to send our thoughts and prayers to Magomed and his family. Again, all of your money goes to Magomed and his family. Ring 10 keeps NOTHING. We are a 501(c)3 approved organization.
