Investigation Into the New York State Athletic Commission

Investigation Into the New York State Athletic Commission

On November 2, 2013, heavyweight boxer Magomed Abdusalamov sustained a brain injury during a 10-round boxing match against Ismaikel Perez at Madison Square Garden. In the aftermath of the fight, the Inspector General initiated an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Abdusalamov’s injury. Additionally, then-New York Secretary of State Cesar A. Perales formally requested that the Inspector General commence an investigation into whether the New York State Athletic Commission, a division of the Department of State, properly fulfilled its responsibilities as the state agency that regulates boxing in New York State.
