Wladimir Klitschko is not only being stalked by Shannon Briggs, he's also dealing with a lawsuit that could cost him a considerable amount of moneyMagomed Abdusalamov, a boxer signed to Klitschko's K2 Boxing Promotions, suffered permanent brain damage following a November 2nd loss to Mike Perez.
Abdusalamov's jaw and hand were broken during the brutal fight at the Theater at Madison Square Garden. He fell into a coma at the hospital for two weeks and suffered several seizures. He underwent surgery to remove a large blood clot in his brain, but doctors say he may never walk or talk again, according to ESPN.
Abdusalamov's wife is suing K2 Boxing Promotions, New York State, it's athletic commission and five New York State Athletic Commission doctors for $100 million. She believes recklessness, gross negligence and medical malpractice led to her husband's condition. She blames Klitschko for not stopping the fight when it became clear her husband was losing badly and suffering serious damage. The fight went the full 10 rounds.
According to TMZ, Klitschko has filed a claim for his insurance company to cover any money awarded in the lawsuit. The insurance company says they are not liable because the police only covers sickness, death outside the ring that would result in the cancellation of a fight.
