Bakanay Adusalamova, the wife of injured boxer Magomed Abdusalmanov, on behalf of their three daughters, has filed a $100 million lawsuit against the State of New York and NYSAC.
The lawsuit is said to claim“carelessness, negligence, medical malpractice and wanton disregard” in allowing Abdusalmanov to be “repeatedly, seriously, unreasonably and violently beaten, bludgeoned, punched and pummeled by his opponent(Mike Perez) without proper, timely or adequate recognition and/or rescue”.
The lawsuit added that Abdusalamov “was further caused, allowed and permitted to sustain life-threatening injuries including but not limited to acute traumatic brain injury, significant and permanent brain damage, coma and multiple comminuted facial fractures due to the improper, untimely and inadequate medical care and treatment” provided by the commission.
Magomed Abdusalmanov, who was undefeated prior to being out-pointed by Cuban heavyweight Mike Perez, was taken ill immediately after the fight with Perez concluded at Madison Square Garden in New York on November 2, 2013.
