A really pathetic situation,

Most well-known commissions have decent doctors who are committed to the safety of the fighter. For all the criticism that the WBC gets, they, the British Boxing Board of Control, and the Nevada State Athletic Commission are very good. California is also excellent. However, who can forget the tragic Greg Page-Dale Crowe fight, where they not only had an unlicensed doctor at ringside, but did not have proper medical equipment? And the famous Terry-Norris-Luis Santana fight with Norris DQ'd in Mexico from a rabbit punch, and the visiting "doctor" putting his finger to Santana's chest along with that beat up Army cot that they put Santana on, almost dropping him. Ferdie Paccheco was livid and rightly so during the Showtime telecast. The doctor was literally doing nothing with Santana motionless on the floor.

Fightnews has released a story about another recent fight that took place where a retired doctor was on some commission and did not even have the basic equipment to tend to his fighters cuts!
