Jay-Z And Roc Nation Accused Of Abandoning Boxer With Brain Damage

Boxer Daniel Franco claims Jay-Z and Roc Nation are leaving him hanging as he recovers from a serious brain injury.

(AllHipHop News) A championship boxer is accusing Jay-Z and Roc Nation of abandoned him s he seeks to treat a serious medical condition.

Back in June, James Franco was knocked out in the 8th round, by Jose Haro, which he says resulted in a traumatic brain injury.

The boxer had bleeding on the brain and was in a coma for almost two weeks after the devastating blow by Haro.

According to Daniel Franco, he reached out to Roc nation's reps multiple times for help, which never materialized.

"They haven’t been great people," Daniel Franco said. “They left me out there to dry.”

The 25-year-old boxer claims he is over $200,000 in debt since his injury and has had to launch a GoFundMe page to cover his medical expenses.

In October, Franco blasted Roc Nation on his Instagram page, while his father and trainer Al Franco, begged the company for help during an interview with SB Nation.

Its not about Jay Z, its about Roc Nation Sports by the sound of it... A promotional company should be looking after their fighters, even if its not by law/contract, morally they should be checking in on them to see they are improving... Its not good publicity, what fighter is going to want to sign with a company that could potentially leave you stranded your death bed???

Oceansky34 keep it real, how rich do you really think Jay got off of boxing. That has to be like some type of charity work he does because you or i can’t name two fighters he made big money off of.

Hell Yeah I would expect Jay Z's rich ass to give a damn about me after I put my life on the line and made him richer. If my life as a boxer was over with brain damage. No more boxing, No more flipping burgers at McDonald's. Y'all need to have a heart and realize if this was you or your child who has brain damage how you would feel. Although it may not be Jays fault, he should have more empathy for this man. Love em and leave em, chew em up and spit em back out. Use em and abuse em. The best thing to do is expose Jay for how he really is. He only cared about the money made on the fight not about the man who was hurt in the process. That should bother people.
