We are incredibly sad to report that Russian Heavyweight Magomed Abdusalamov is in a coma following his loss to Cuban Mike Perez.
Although Abdusalamov managed to see out the 10 round schedule it was obvious that he was showing signs of being tough for his own health. He took the best shots that Perez had in his arsenal and was left badly swollen around the face with cuts and swelling being very visible.
The facial injuries, including a broken nose, were less of an issue to an apparent bleed on the brain that Abdulsamov is being reported to have had.
There is good news however. Abdusalamov's coma was medically induced as opposed to one he fell into following the bout. This was done as a precaution to stop any further complications and we are all hoping that he'll make a full recovery.
We send our wishes to "Mago" who gave us a very fun fight to watch though unfortunately it may be his final contest with very few men coming back from the type of damage Abdulsalmov took.
