Kieran Farrell Confirms That He Will Never Box Again Due To Brain Damage

Sad news today for 22 year old, Kieran “Vicious” Farrell, as he tweeted that doctors have confirmed to him that he will never box again. Farrell suffered permanent brain damage after his bout with Anthony Crolla, December 7th, in Manchester.

 

Kieran had to be taken out of the ring on stretcher after the 22 year old collapsed in the ring at the end of the brutal 10 round bout. Initial reports suggested that Kieran was suffering from exhaustion and was recovering in hospital, but today he broke the news via Twitter that he has suffered irreparable damage.

 

 ‏@VICIOUSFARRELL:

 

“Dr Hewitt, confirmed my worst fears today. I will never box again, the next punch to my head could be fatal & the BBBofC wouldn’t licence me”

 

Kieran Farrell ‏@VICIOUSFARRELL:

 

“I asked if I had a 4 year long break would I be able to box? He told me I have long term brain damage, once its damaged it won’t mend”

 

Kieran Farrell ‏@VICIOUSFARRELL

 

“I was expecting the worse but its worse when its told to you, I’m heart broke. I need a few days to get my head round it. VIVA LAS VICIOUS”

 

 

 

Our best wishes go out to Kieran who had a promising career ahead of him. We wish you all the best in your recovery process.
