I watched the first seven rounds of the Chris Eubank/ Nick Blackwell fight last night, but switched off for two reasons: one, an early departure, two, I didn’t want to see the brave lad Blackwell being hurt any worse than he was.

Today, he’s in a coma, and I’m not surprised. It must have been obvious to everyone except the referee andthe lad’s   corner that there was a tragedy in the making, but it took the doctor to stop it.

I’ve watched boxing all my life, but I’ve never had the foreboding that I had last night.

    Had he not retired recently I would have loved to see what Hugh McIlvanney would have to say
