ichael Conlan is “conscious and stable” after being taken to hospital in the aftermath of a brutal 12th-round knockout by Leigh Wood in Saturday night’s world featherweight title fight in Nottingham, Matchroom Boxing CEO Frank Smith has confirmed.

Conlan was sent through the ropes by a massive right hand from the defending WBA champion in a hugely dramatic finish to an enthralling contest at Motorpoint Arena, with the bout immediately waved off amid concern over his condition at ringside.

There were muted celebrations from Wood, who implored his hometown crowd to tone down their celebrations in the circumstances and said he could not savour his unlikely comeback victory until he knew Conlan was okay.

The Belfast fighter received treatment at ringside before being transported backstage and onto hospital.

Matchroom CEO Smith tweeted: “Michael Conlan arrived at hospital, conscious and stable.”

Wood told DAZN: “First of all I just hope Michael is all right, I can’t celebrate until I know he is all right.

“He is so tough and it was a bad knockout so I just want to see he is all right.”
