    Fingers crossed for the young man and as you say, as harsh reminder of the realities of the fight game.

    He didn't just answer every exchange, Eubank's low guard made it seem very possible that Blackwell would catch him on the way out. Otherwise maybe the ref would have stopped it earlier. As it was though, there was one point earlier where arguably he might have stepped in, but I don't think you could really criticise him for not doing so.

    Blackwell kept moving forwards with his guard high, but he was getting caught too often and had almost no head movement, so he was getting repeated and quite solid hits even through his guard.

    He showed tremendous strength of spirit and courage, I really hope he's ok. He's obviously a tough guy.

    His corner should have

    Blackwell lacks 1 punch power and was never going to win short of Eubank suffering a heart attack.

    I know in MMA the promoter covers every fighter. In california it's between $2500-$5000 per event (I think).

    I only know this because in New York only big promotions will be allowed to fight there because health insurance is closer to $100,000 per event.

    Boxers aren't known for being the sharpest tools in the box.

    Incredibly stupid, selfish and did I mention stupid?

    Unlike other athletes, such as Olympic swimmers.
