DeAndre Ware isn't just a fighter. He's an EMT and firefighter from Ohio who put his skills to work outside the ring ahead of Saturday's bout in Las Vegas.

Inside the MGM Grand Conference Center a half-hour before Friday's weigh-in for his fight against Steven Nelson, Ware jumped into action when Pete Susens, a coordinator with Top Rank, suffered a suspected heart attack. Ware administered chest compressions and worked with the Nevada State Athletic Commission's onsite doctor as they waited for additional help to arrive.

Susens was taken to a local hospital and is now responsive and communicating, according to Top Rank media relations director Evan Korn.

Ware, 32, is married with three children and has boxed professionally for five years while being a full-time firefighter. He also played college football at the University of Toledo, primarily on special teams.
