“Dana White was pissed cause that’s his money cow. ”

That’s because White thinks he is the second coming. White doesn’t care about his fighters. He’s all about putting on a show and making loads of money. As Nick Diaz.

it’s time to put sanctions on some of these so-called trainers that are far braver than their actual fighters….a fighter will never acknowledge that he is losing a fight because of his pride and heart, a trainer needs to train a fighter properly in all aspects of the sport and know when his fighter has had enough and stop waiting for a miracle to happen

Fight Afic, we have not always agreed on our views about fighters and fights but I definitely am with you on this 100 percent. Your views have always had a mature and adult manner with no cursing and physical challenges to the person with a different look. You are a good man for this.

“It always amazes me when HBO, their cast of millionaire sports commentators, Presidents, Executive VPs, VPs, etc. all are easily making several millions a year and now are asking the public viewers to contribute to a fund to help an injured guy who was helping them make their millions.” – For real. These guys are all millionaires and expect us to subsidize what they should already have. That said, I’m going to donate money to Mago just because I feel for him and his family, and was a fan well before he got on HBO.

I saw a UFC article about George St Pierre. How he wants to step away from the UFC. Dana White was pissed cause that’s his money cow. GSP’s face was a mess. I don’t blame him for wanting to take a break. How bout Dana White get his ass in the ring and take a beating….? That I would like to see

It always amazes me when HBO, their cast of millionaire sports commentators, Presidents, Executive VPs, VPs, etc. all are easily making several millions a year and now are asking the public viewers to contribute to a fund to help an injured guy who was helping them make their millions. If they each donate a day, a week, a month of their earnings I am 100% sure Mago’s medical bills will be more than paid. Sadly, this is just a reflection of corporate America and only thing that mattes is what helps the bottom line to increase shareholder wealth. If HBO was smart enough to pay for the medical bills, their good will would increase several fold but that’s not immediately measureable. I’m not saying we should not contribute but look who really should. We pray for Mago’s recovery.

As a fight fan I don’t want to see anyone get hurt in the ring. this fighter had a great career ahead of him had he not been hurt in this fight so, I want to thank him for being the fighter he was, God, he had power and was feared by many fighters. Again, just imagine his career had he not been hurt ?… So, I say with the utmost respect to a fallen gladiator, Get well and may God speed your recovery.. Your were a GREAT fighter… PEACE … Boxingdictionary.com

I don’t want to see any one get hurt in the ring. AND as a fight fan, to me that’s not what it’s all about… I hope this fighter, who would have had a tremendous career had he not been hurt, deserves all the respect in the world.. God Bless and i hope improve and get better, you were a great fighter …. PEACE … Boxingdictionary.com

I would like to remind people of Golovkin Rosado as far the idea of the cornerman’s responsibility to stop the fight. Rosado’s trainer Billy Briscoe was yelling Rosado’s dad to let him stop the fight and he did as he watched Gabe get beaten to a pulp. Props to Briscoe for stopping it, but damn Rosado’s own father/manager for making Briscoe have to scream at him to get permission to save his son’s life. Golovkin would have beaten him to death had someone not done the right thing there. I would say the ref would have stopped it, but Gabe kept throwing back. As long as he does that, a ref is supposed to let it go. Cornermen have a repsonisibility to save their fighters from what Mago had happen. His corner should have stopped it, even if he was wobbling Perez every now and again right to the end.

He’s going to be a drooling vegitable wearing a diaper and spoon feed the rest of his life, who is anyone kidding. He’s screwed.

The mean comments of sarcasm is realy poor human like response to a critical situation of one of our warriors in this sport.Hope he fully recovers.

Well, I was told that the the Affordable Care Act prevent Mago from going bankrupt – even if he has a pre-existing condition. Or was that all a bunch of hokum?

This is a sad loss for boxing. Mago was fun as hell to watch. Happy he’s going to be fine, but he would be wise to never return to the ring as great as it is was to watch him. I just hope he doesn’t wind up like Gerald McClellan when it’s all said and done.

I wish Mago a speedy and full recovery. I missed this fight, and I’m not sorry about it. It’s always hard to watch endure such injuries.

Well said ! The role of refree is ungrateful, but it is an essential one. Without the refs, boxing would become street fightind.

“the promotion company is trying to pass his bills on to the public when we’ve already given them millions of dollars.” – True. No fighter should have to go bankrupt to pay for medical care from a fight. The responsibility falls on the promoter to pay more than the minimum required medical insurance. Mago shouldn’t pay a dime here. Lewkowicz should.

Glad to hear Mago will soon be brought out of the coma. Fingers crossed on his long term health.

@K.C. – “Its not just the heavy weight division, this can happen at any weight division”
Agreed, and I’d take it a step further and say it happens more often in the lighter divisions. I guess the way guys would demolish themselves to make weight increases their chances of serious injury.

Shame about Mago. I didn’t realize he was near death (i.e. thought he was just sedated as a precaution). I thought he was a little overrated after the McCline fight, but he was still a good contender and it would’ve been great to keep him around.
Hopefully he has other skills to fall back on outside of boxing.

Come on Sampson put your hand in your pocket , do not expect the public to bail you out over mago..do anything it takes, sell your house and get a smaller one …just look after the poor man… Don’t pass the buck..

Its not just the heavy weight division, this can happen at any weight division. That’s why we have ref’s and corner people. There are guys that have been killed in the ring. When a corner person stops a fight they are critized! They are the hero’s! Its never an easy way to stop a fight but that’s how a fighter lives to fight another day……

first doctors forecasted that he would not make it. So the very fact of his recovery is very good news. however, he may be blind and his speech may be blurred forever. It is really a long way forward for him, and his case fully highlights the unfairness of the sport and questionable ethics of fans who want blood, not so called boring klitchko, mayweather, etc. styles. i think boxing has to get reformed but i do not know how. when fury falls to the ground from a first punch, there is no questions that it was not a deadly event, when mago took those shots and did not fall, he ended up nearly dead and who knows what will be when he wakes up. what was the point of briggs standing 12 rounds against vital and spending days in the hospital afterwards? there should be an authority on heavier groups, not superheavies only, to stop and rule the result. I think so

God bless. He had a weird lump on his face after the 1st round. Was never going to win it after the 7th and the time was right then to pull him oit. Hopefully makes a full recovery and can have a normal life.

Glad to hear that he has survived. Head injuries are always serious. This man will never step in the ring again. Hopefully he is able to learn to speak again and maybe, just maybe be able to take steps again and be able to feed himself. This will be a lifelong recovery. God bless him

While i agree with you fully REM that the people who make the big money out of these fighters should have to pay any and all fight related medical bills for them, unfortunately in the real world they wont always be that honest. What i urge any boxing fan to do is take the money out of the promoters pocket and put it in magomeds by skipping the next couple of pay per view fights and sending mago the money instead.
While i am happy and releived that he is going to live i worry if he may have sustained life changing injuries and i hope he can make a full recovery to live a happy life and find work now that he will no longer be a prizefighter.

Great to hear Mago has a chance to enjoy life and his family again it would have been hard to enjoy boxing if he didn’t. Now I’m glad the public came to his aid but I’m discusted that the promotion company is trying to pass his bills on to the public when we’ve already given them millions of dollars. Just my thoughts on this matter but I sure hope they take good care of him for the rest of his life for him sacrificing so much for them.
