Photos: Why didn't the referee stop the fight? Boxer in coma after suffering brain injuries during boxing match

British boxer Nick Blackwell (right) is in an induced coma after suffering a bleed on the brain following a domestic title fight defeat to Chris Eubank Jr on Saturday night. The referee didn't stop the match and allowed it to go on until the tenth round, when a doctor indicated Nick Blackwell couldn't continue the fight due to severe brain injuries from punches by Chris Eubank Jr.

For the referee to allow this fight to go on until the tenth round despite seeing the severe injuries inflicted on Blackwell from the first round up till the tenth round is so inhumane. Blackwell is now in a state of coma.

Wawuu! Look at his eye.
He should have asked for the fight to stop,was he held there at gun point.

WTF! Look at the contour on his head. Why didn't his coach/team throw in the towel? I am guessing a mafia don bet on this fight, and they couldn't end it like that cos of the heavy stakes involved.

The a doctor stopped the fight due to the swelling on the eye as opposed to the brain injuries.

OMG Chris Eubank Jr is just taking after his father. His father is know to beat people into disabilities and comas. Just google what his father did to Micheal Watson.

Tiwa Jacob said...

Chris Eubank jnr. Like father like son. They should place an embargo on that family boxing wise. Lesson learnt. Never get into a ring with a Eubank

Diane Utsu said...

What a fight... nicely beaten

The referee is not a doctor. The guy probably indicated he could keep going. Hope he gets better soon.

Kojevspin D Realist said...

Dats so wrong KC. It is d responsibility of d umpire to step in n stop d fight wen he feels d boxer is in danger. In dis particular fight it was obvious Blackwell was severely hurt but neither d ref or his corner stopped d fight. Google this fight n u will see wen Eubank Snr was telling Eubank Jnr not to throw punches to d head of Blackwell. He was so frustrated dat d ref had not stopped d fight, bc he remembered how he too sent a boxer into coma during his time n this haunted him for years. Pls blame d ref n Blackwells team for not throwing in d towel

Goldmine said...

It's not the job of the referee to stop a match...if the boxer and his coach believe the can still win the fight, regardless of the blood. If he is so weak to continue, he (or his coach) should throw in the towel.

Demmy said...

I really pray he's out of coma soon.

I hate boxing.

I watched the match live, the referee was a bastard because even Chris nse told him to stop the match he ignored.


I personal feel the referee was a racist trying to buy time and give the white boy a chance to win but it back fired badly.

Linda, I watched the match live and am an avid boxing fan. I never miss a live boxing match for 15 years in a roll. There are several rules in boxing and in this actual instance, Rule 1: Only the Referee can stop the fight, should have applied. The boxer's corner also had the rights to throw in the towel if they felt their boxer was weak and can't continue. However this was a championship bout, in fact the British welter weight championship and Nick Blackwell was the defending champion. Two things played out here 1. Nick being the defending champion will not let go without a fight 2. His corner still believed he could turn the game around. However, in the boxing ring, there are 2 boxers and each with his own ambition during that 12 rounds of boxing. The upper cuts from C. Eubank Jr. were to accurate and Nick wasn't moving around or holding to avoid them. He took too many upper cut and blows to the head. In fact, in my watch, the bout ended around the 6th round, but he kept on showing resilience and hope of turning the tide around.
Chris Eubank Jr. is a legend in the making and a fine young boxer. This bout will lead him to fight international where he would be tested by more experienced and rugged boxers in the game.
Come Saturday April 9th in Vegas, it is Timothy Bradley vs Manny Pacquiao III for the WBO welter bout, this will be fun. In London England, O2 Arena, Anthony Joshua v Charles Martin (IBF heavyweight). Anthony Joshua is actually Nigeria Born Heavyweight and he ko'ed Dillian White in the 7th Round last December. April 23: Inglewood, USA, Gennady Golovkin v Dominic Wade (WBA/IBF middleweight), Roman Gonzalez v McWilliams Arroyo (WBC flyweight) Both Gennady and Dominic are undefeated prospects.

No he did not kill a boxer. Pls get your facts right. Chris Eubanks Sr. Fight with Michael Watson left him partially brain damaged. This was due to paramedics not arriving on site until about 30mins or so and no oxygen was given on time. He was in a coma for 5 months and took several months to recover. He had to learn to talk and walk again. Boxing can be dangerous at times. By the way Chris Eubanks sr and Michael Watson are still good friends. At the end of the day it was an accident and the injury was not intended. Chris even stepped into the ring during this fight to tell his son to only hit him on the body as he unsure was to why the referee is not stopping the fight and did not want his son to hurt the guy any further that may lead to serious injury.
