NICK BLACKWELL remains in an induced coma after suffering a bleed on the brain following his defeat to Chris Eubank Jr on Saturday, but doctors are not planning on operating.

Blackwell collapsed in the ring after his 10th round stoppage loss to Eubank and left the ring on a stretcher before being rushed to hospital.

A scan on Sunday revealed there was no increase in the pressure on his brain, meaning surgery should not be required. He remains under sedation with doctors constantly monitoring his condition.
