By Edward Chaykovsky

British welterweight contender Lee Purdy (20-5-1, 13KOs) says his career is now in doubt after suffering a detached retina, according to The Daily Gazette. The 26-year-old boxer had a very bruising 2013. He took a beating in a seven round TKO defeat to then IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander in May, and then he was knocked out in the twelfth round of his fight with EBU champion Leonard Bundu in December.

Must be a bad one, because fighters come back from that injury all the time.

Sad news for him, at least he can look back on his career and be thankful he got a shot at the world title.

sucks for him, but medical technology is awesome might be able to correct the problem, they did with mares.
