Jonjo, 32, is said to be in a stable condition after being knocked out in the sixth round by Clark in his first defence of the International Masters title.The fight was a rematch after Jonjo lost to Clark in April for the vacant belt.
Ringside medical staff were quickly in the ring at the Burton Town Hall to attend to Finnegan, and he was then rushed to Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre, where he went into surgery.
Carl Greaves, Clark’s manager, Tweeted this morning: “Just to let everyone know, the doctors are pleased with how the operation went.
“Jonjo is now on a ventilator and is stable but in intensive care.”
A devastated Ryan Clark wrote: “I hate myself so much right now. Wish I could turn back time and just give him my belt. I did not mean to hurt anyone that bad.
“It is boxing – could have happened to any of us. You are in my prayers, Jonjo.”
