BREAKING NEWS: Magomed Abdusalamov
Ring 10 is accepting donations that will go directly to Magomed and his family. Just click on the donate button at the bottom of this page.
Please accept our apologies for not bringing you an update sooner. The truth of the matter is there is not a lot to update. Ring 10 has been in constant contact with Magomed’s family. We touch base at least once a day, if not more. We’ve met with them on several occasions and handed them all of your heartfelt and generous contributions. Magomed is still in a coma. His family is set up in the intensive care unit and remain there daily. With the holidays around the corner, Ring 10 is continuing to accept donations, but will also accept any presents you may wish to gift Magomed and Bakanay’s daughters. Their ages are 8, 4 and 11 months. At this time, perhaps that’s all we can do. Let us continue to keep the Abdusalamov Family in our thoughts and prayers. Gifts can be sent to 30 Bowdon Road, Greenlawn, NY 11740, C/O The Abdusalamov Family. We will be more than happy to pass it on to Bakanay and the girls on your behalf.
Abdusalamov, 32, showed improvement on Thursday, opening his right eye and moving his right foot, causing doctors to take him off a respirator while in the intensive care unit. Magomed awoke briefly from his coma and was taken off life support and was breathing on his own on Thursday. But on Friday, just when it seemed like his condition was on the upswing, the heavyweight boxer suffered a setback when his temperature rose suddenly to 103, forcing doctors to place him back in a medically induced coma and on life support, his promoter said. Abdusalamov is fighting for his life. Please keep your thoughts with him and his family.
The attempted awakening of brain-damaged heavyweight boxer Magomed Abdusalamov from his medically-induced coma didn’t happen on Saturday.
Doctors were hoping to rouse Abdusalamov after he moved his right arm slightly on Friday during a test of his motor skills at St. Luke’s Hospital, where he has remained in intensive care. But doctors revised that scenario, deciding he wasn’t prepared to be taken off life support and stirred from his coma, his promoter, Nathan Lewkowicz said in a phone interview.
Doctors also removed “vacuum tubing” from his head, an indicator that swelling on his brain has tapered off, Lewkowicz said.
Sampson Lewkowicz, wishes to thank the boxing world for their prayers and donations to badly injured Russian heavyweight Magomed “Mago” Abdusalamov and has some cautiously optimistic news to convey. “Mago is still in an induced coma but is beginning to respond positively. I expect him to live. On behalf of the family and myself, I now ask you to switch your prayers to his recovery. He has a very long road ahead.” Today marks 14 days Abdusalamov has been in an induced coma at Roosevelt Hospital in New York. The 32-year-old married father of three young daughters, had to undergo emergency surgery to remove a blood clot, and part of his skull had to be removed to reduce swelling, following his brutal 10-round war against Mike Perez at The Theater at Madison Square Garden, on Saturday, November 2. In the hospital, Abdusalamov came down with a 104-degree fever, which led to him suffering a stroke. Doctors say they will try to wake Abdusalamov in a few days and test his reactions.“From the bottom of my heart, we all appreciate the support, monetary and spiritually, that we have received worldwide. Doctors don’t know how far Mago will come back, but his recovery will be long and costly and we are still in need of further donations. I would like to also thank Ring 10 New York for their assistance in collecting funds.”Ring 10 is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping boxers in need. 100% of tax-deductible donations will go towards helping Magomed Abdusalamov and his costly recovery.
“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.”
