British boxer in coma after title fight loss LONDON- British middleweight boxer Nick Blackwell remains in an induced coma following his defeat to Chris Eubank Jr. on Saturday. The 25-year-old fighter suffered bleeding on the brain after the fight was stopped in the 10th round. The stoppage came after a ringside doctor advised the referee that Blackwell was unable to see through his left eye.

British Boxing Board of Control general secretary Robert Smith says Sunday: "He's in intensive care, he's in an induced coma and he is resting and being looked after by the experts. "It's a very normal procedure. They put you in a coma to get the swelling to go down. There's no time-scale. Now it's just a matter of waiting and seeing." The Guardian reports Blackwell took heavy punishment during most rounds of the domestic title fight. Eubank Jr. told reporters afterwards: "I was hitting him with some big shots and the referee saw fit to let the fight go on. Looking back now, maybe he should have stopped it earlier."
