As the festive celebrations approach we have some good news.

It has been confirmed that the former British middleweight champion has woken from a coma.

Blackwell, who was forced to retire after being placed in an induced coma following his British middleweight title fight against Chris Eubank Jnr, had inexplicably gotten back into the ring to return to sparring.

The inexplicable act saw Blackwell in a coma for the second time this year and requiring surgery to reduce swelling on the brain.

The incident that saw Blackwell get involved with a sparring session is set to be investigated by the British Boxing Board of Control, in January.

But whilst the arguments will rage as to why it was allowed to happen it is great news that Nick has come out of his coma.

Now can we all hope that he makes a full recovery and isn?t foolish enough to climb between those ropes again?
