As we await further news relating to the stricken boxer Nick Blackwell, his family have given the briefest of updates.

Placed into an induced coma, after his British middleweight title fight against Chris Eubank Jnr, his family have advised the media that they expect him to come out of his coma in the next forty-eight to seventy-two hours.

Continuing, his family have said that Blackwell remains heavily sedated but the amount of drugs he is being fed will be reduced over the next two to three days.

Here at Vital Boxing we?ve got our fingers crossed that the twenty-five year-old emerges from his coma in relatively good health.
