Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

Otorohanga-based professional boxer Daniel MacKinnon (21-8) is battling for his life following a brutal light heavyweight title fight in Hamilton as part of the Tua-Ustinov undercard.

MacKinnon, 30, was stopped in the 10th round against Robbie Berridge (21-1, 18KOs) on Saturday night in what was described as "brutal and bloody brawl".

He was taken to Waikato Hospital following the fight where he underwent emergency brain surgery.

He was in a critical but stable condition in the intensive care unit on Sunday, according to a statement from his manager Ken Reinsfield.

MacKinnon was knocked down in the seventh and ninth rounds before the referee stopped the fight in the 10th round.

On November 2 in New York, heavyweight Magomed Abdusalamov also took a bad beating at the hands of Mike Perez and was taken to the hospital afterwards. He suffered a brain bleed and also underwent emergency surgery.

Harsh realities of the sport we all know and love. Every time a fighter steps inside the ring he/she puts their life on the line.

Damn... I streamed that fight.. MacKinnon showed a lot of heart to get up from that liver shot and not many fighters would have got back up after getting sent through the ropes like that.. When the ref stopped it, I thought it was a little early, but now I'm like.. The ref probably saved his life...

[QUOTE=JmH Reborn]What I hate most is fans who complain if a fighter retires on his stool, throws in the towel, or drops to his knees I hate those people with a passion and want them to walk into traffic[/QUOTE] I feel the same way except the traffic part lol, but that bothers me a lot.
