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.




“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”




“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.

About The Author

Erin Elizabeth is a writer for and TBV's first Canadian correspondent, Erin's fistic odyssey had its precursor in schoolgirl fascinations with Montreal-raised TV legend Arturo Gatti and British-Yemeni international superstar Naseem Hamed, but more recently began in earnest with her introduction to the world of internet boxing forums, where she found herself engaged in the wisdom of seasoned fight-followers and spent countless days and nights feasting on classic wars involving ring-legends such as Marvin Hagler, Thomas Hearns, Chris Eubank and Marco Antonio Barrera, as well as enjoying the talents of modern day crowdpleasers like Kell Brook and Danny Garcia and prospects such as Ricky Lopez and Jorge Diaz. A super busy mother of two, who currently plies her trade as a qualified make-up expert, Erin looks to marry her equal passion for prose and pugilism in her output for TBV. Of boxing's impact upon her daily consciousness, she will refer to her ritual pre-work motivational viewings of Hagler-Hearns or Barrera-McKinney, or to the antics of her equally boxing-crazed significant other (who, upon receiving a kiss, once yelled the words "She glossed me!" to a crowded London street in homage to British-Zimbabwean heavyweight contender Dereck Chisora). Erin's first experience of a live fight atmosphere came this past Summer, when she attended the middleweight championship showdown between Sergio Martinez and Julio César Chávez Jr. in Las Vegas - all indicators suggest that she'll be taking a ringside seat at events, big and small, for many years to come.
