EDUARD GUTKNECHT was taken to hospital after collapsing in his changing room following a 12-round points loss to George Groves at Wembley Arena.
The pair were fighting for a lofty WBA super-middleweight ranking and the German was outboxed and hurt several ties during the fight, which also saw his right eye swell massively.
The 34-year-old fell ill in his changing room and was taken to hospital on a stretcher. There has been no further update on his condition, but members of Groves’ team such as trainer Shane McGuigan took to social media in support of Gutknecht.
Thoughts are with Eduard Gutknecht after tonight’s fight.
