Former European heavyweight champion Sinan Samil Sam is currently in intensive care in Instanbul, Turkey.
The Turkisk boxing idol vomited blood last Wednesday and was directly taken to the hospital. His doctor Dilek Oguz informed the media on Tuesday that Sam’s condition is critical and that he urgently needs a liver transplant.
“I called the hospital but couldn’t speak to Sinan directly“, said long-time friend, manager and promoter Ahmet Oner. „I wish him only the best and hope that he can overcome this very serious illness. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.“
It is believed Samil Sam is suffering from cirrhosis of the liver
