    Daniel Twitch Franco was a Roc Nation fighter who was put in a coma
    after a ko in June. Roc Nation abandoned him and gave him zero
    help when he was in hospital fighting for his life and they're givem
    him zero help since.
    Jay Z who owns Roc Nation is worth a estimated 800 million $ US.

    Roc Nation do you really care about your fighters ?

    Daniel has to set up gofundme to raise medical bills.

    Jay Z doesn't care zero about his fighter.
    He has no compassion or heart.
    Didn't even bother to contact or visit him in hospital.

    Haven't investigated fully but why would Daniel have to set up a gofundme ?
    Just such a shame a promising young man prime taken from him.

    And boxing wonders why it has trouble attracting U.S. fighters in large numbers like it used to.

    Thanks to the internet and the rise of social media, it's not nearly as easy to hide how it throws its fighters away as it used to be. Before, it might've taken years- if ever- for a tragic scenario to be revisited.

    I hate to be hard-hearted, but like Trump said about the dead soldier; "he knew what he was getting into."

    Boxing is and always was a dirty, hurt business. This silliness about Roc Nation means nothing, do you really think Top Rank or GBP is going to expend millions of dollars on a guy who can't fight anymore? It doesn't work like that. Never did. I understand Twitch and his family's fear and frustration, but the posters are just silly. If the guy wanted a guaranteed contract he should have played baseball.

    Even Don King helped Gerald McCellan with medical bills.
    Surely a billionaire can spare $100k ?

    Daniel has the support of a loving family and i'm sure all boxing fans
    wish him the best.

    It's all well and good saying he know what he got himself into but still roc nation could easily help with his medical bills.

    Further investigation.
    The instagram post in the OP got taken down.
    Hopefully something good came out of Daniel 's post .
    Daniel family should never had to go to this extreme.

    Look at the gofundme for Daniel .
    Rock Nation didn't even donate $ 1.

    Did Sampson Lewkowicz or K2 pay for Magomed?
    I know Magomed actually sued K2.
