MOSCOW, November 4 (Itar-Tass) - The state of Russian super heavy weight boxer Magomed Abdusalamov, who is in a medically induced coma, is not life-threatening, the boxer's manager Boris Grinberg told an Itar-Tass correspondent by telephone.
Magomed had a very serious cranial trauma. If it had not been for the doctors' professionalism and his strong organism, Magomed might have died. At present, there is no threat to his life. Everything bad has passed. He may come from the induced coma in one-two days. But American doctors would not make haste, the manager said.
On Saturday, in the ten-round fight in New York in the Madison Square Garden complex, Abdusalamov lost to Cuban boxer Mike Perez. The Russian received a lot of body and face injuries. According to various sources, Abdusalamov has fractures of the nose and the left hand, a cut over his left eye and a jaw trauma. "Magomed felt unwell outdoors after we left the hall. We decided to take him to a hospital. I was present at the operation. What the medics did was fantastic," Grinberg said.
The process of recovery will take long time, maybe a month. There is no talking for the present about his return to the ring. He must be rehabilitated, stand on his feet and return to normal life, he noted.
The manager said the boxer's close relatives -- his mother, father, wife and brother were with him, not leaving him for a minute.
