Video: Kieran Farrell talks to British Boxers
On the 7th of December 2012 Kieran Farrell took on fellow Mancunian Anthony Crolla in a fight for the vacant English lightweight title.
The fight lived up to all the expectations and both boxers fought toe to toe at a relentless pace for 12 gruelling rounds producing British boxing’s fight of 2012. – Fight Report
Farrell lost the contest on points, but before the result was announced, he collapsed in the ring and was taken out on a stretcher and rushed to hospital.
An MRI scan confirmed that Kieran had suffered a bleed on the brain. Kieran lived to tell the tale and has made a dramatic recovery but his boxing career was over.
In this video Kieran talks about the Crolla fight for the first time on camera and tells British Boxers how he is coming to terms with the fact that he will never be able to take part in the sport that he loves with a passion.
Kieran announced an unfortunate, but necessary, premature retirement from boxing this month. His decision was made for him by doctors who have monitored his progress following the domestic classic with fellow Crolla. Farrell remained optimistic throughout his recovery that he would one day box again but was left devastated when told of his fate.
