Michael Norgrove in Hospital
Light middleweight boxer Michael Norgrove (5-0), from Woodford Green, has been rushed to hospital and is undergoing surgery after collapsing in the ring and suffering suspected bleeding on the brain. Michael boxed for The Repton between 2008 and 2010. He represented the club as an 'OpenClass' Boxer on a number of occasions. During his amateur days 'crowdpleaser' Michael was a powerful boxer and everyone of his contests was an 'all action' humdinger of a bout.
Michael was boxing at the Newly refurbished venue 'The Ring' in Blackfriars, the first professional boxing to be staged at the venue in 73 years. The remaining bouts on the card were cancelled.
The undefeated 31-year-old, who has five wins from five, was contesting his sixth professional fight when he fell to the ground.
With suspected bleeding on the brain, the Zambia-born fighter was immediately taken to hospital where he was operated on.
Everyone at The Repton wishes Michael a full recovery and our thoughts are with his family.
