NICK BLACKWELL has spoken publicly for the first time since waking from the induced coma he was put under following his 10th-round stoppage loss to Chris Eubank Jnr last month.

Blackwell collapsed in the ring after the fight and was rushed to hospital where he was placed under sedation as doctors discovered he had a bleed on the skull.

After seven days in the coma, Blackwell woke last week and today posted on his brother Dan’s Facebook page.
