British boxer Blackwell in coma after Eubank Jr. loss

LONDON (AP) 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.

He was carried out of the venue on a stretcher.

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.''
