Anthony Joshua’s trainer Rob McCracken has been told he could have let Anthony Joshua die during his defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr after admitting he knew the Brit was concussed. Joshua lost his unbeaten record and world heavyweight titles when he was stunned by Ruiz Jr in New York in June with a seventh-round stoppage.
The pair are set to go head to head again in Saudi Arabia in December with Joshua desperate to avenge his defeat.
Ahead of the rematch, McCracken admitted he knew Joshua was concussed at the end of the third round, having been knocked down twice.
Brain injury charity Headway have slammed Joshua's trainer, and believes his failure to pull out the fighter could have had catastrophic implications.
And there is a serious warning for boxing chiefs over concussion protocol.
