Belfast Boxer Family Ask for Prayers After He Experiences a Brain Injury

(Belfast Telegraph) – The family and friends of Belfast boxer Stephen McMullan have been praying he makes a full recovery after suffering a brain injury during a bout last week.

The heavyweight fighter, who boxes out of north Belfast’s Newington Amateur Boxing Club, is currently in intensive care in the Royal Victoria Hospital following the fight in the Ulster Elite senior boxing finals.

Mr McMullan lost in the final of the provincial boxing championship contest at the Girdwood Community Hub in north Belfast, but “took bad” the following day before being rushed to hospital.

His sister Claire explained he was due to undergo an MRI scan on Monday to assess the seriousness of the brain injury. CONTINUE
