Is he bleeding? You can use styptic powder or cornstarch to stop bleeding. You need to use a towel to immobilize him and keep you both from getting hurt, over his head will help. You can use gauze and pressure to stop bleeding too. Vetericyn or something similar can help him heal and prevent infection.

You need to be calm when you handle him, he will feed off your anxiety.

If they are still bleeding you will need to apply some blood stop powder or corn starch to get the bleeding stopped. Sometimes they can bleed quite a bit. Once stopped you can apply some plain neosporin or triple antibiotic ointment. If reopening or pecking is a risk then you may need to wrap them, but I usually don't. They usually heal up fine, but do keep an eye out for infection, though that is rare.

Ok if he's not actively bleeding I'd clean him up and keep an eye on him to make sure no infection sets in. He will be ok, people remove their spurs and they do just fine it's just not usually from a fight.

Do use a towel though, probably best to remove him from the cage while it's dark, he possibly won't fight you so hard then. Good luck!
