According to reports, the state of New York will settle with a little-known boxer for over $20 million dollars after those involved botched his medical care following a boxing match. The case began in 2013 when two heavyweights went toe-to-toe in a marquee matchup in Madison Square Garden. The problems for the victim began when his opponent smashed his face with a forearm, and it went downhill from there.
The whole fight lasted for 10 rounds, when it was called. The victim was suffering from a broken jaw and severe swelling to his whole head. The problem was that the doctors on site (it is alleged) did not treat him adequately, and even left him to fend for himself to get a taxi to go to the hospital in spite of the fact there was an ambulance just outside the venue.
What resulted was a severe head injury that left the man without many of his normal functions. According to the reports, the victim cannot now put a sentence of words together, and is suffering from brain damage. The settlement he reached with the state of New York will go a long way to ensuring that he gets the proper care going forward.
