jjust because someone is injured does not mean they need immiedate hospital treatment, jonjo was in serious trouble with his breathing, this had to be stabilised before moving him anywhere, i know to outsiders it looks like the medics took there time, we did, but all to the good of jonjo, jonjo had oxygen within 60 seconds, he had to be assisted to breath by ringside doctors who where in the ring within 15 seconds, it was obvious to the medics jonjo had suffered a massive closed head injury, we followed protocols to the letter, as soon as jonjo was stable enough to be moved we got him to the ambulance, again jonjo crashed and had to be worked on furiouslly by the medics to stabilise him, on arrival at hospital he again had to be worked on to clear his airway outside the entrance, he was then taken to the resus room and all staff followed our doctors instructions and work on jonjo continued until he was stable enough for a CT scan, he was then transferred to the QUEENS MEDICAL CENTRE for surgery.. all at the BBBC, the doctors, and medics all wish jonjo a speedy and full recovery, our thoughts are with his family.

Taken from The Burton Mail:

'Waiting game' as boxer remains in induced coma
THE mother and brother of a boxer in intensive care following emergency brain surgery are keeping a vigil by his bedside.

Jonjo Finnegan with Ryan Clark (Left)Newhall’s Jonjo Finnegan remains in a medically induced coma at Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre after efforts by doctors to wake him up failed over the weekend.
The 32-year-old underwent a lifesaving operation on Friday night after being knocked to the canvas by a right hook from Ryan Clark in a bout at Burton Town Hall.
He suffered a bleed to his brain and required oxygen in the ring for 10 minutes before being rushed to hospital.
Doctors say it is now a ‘waiting game’ for the Newhall boxer, but revealed his injuries may have been ‘more severe’ due to the fact that he was dehydrated.
In a statement Jonjo’s mother, Gillian, and brother, Frank, said how they had been overwhelmed by the support he had received.
They said: “We can’t really believe the response we have had, from across the country, after people heard what happened to Jonjo.
“He is never alone for one second and people are queuing up to try to see him.
“The doctors did try to reduce his sedation on Sunday night but the attempt proved unsuccessful and therefore he was sedated again.
“The doctors said they will now monitor him and wait and see before they try it again.
“It seems that it was too much for him and there had not been enough time for the brain to recover.
“He remains in intensive care on a ventilator and his condition is described as stable.
“It is a sorry state of affairs and he is not out of the woods yet, not by a long shot.
“It really is a waiting game now. The doctors have said that they really don’t know what will happen as everyone is different.
“We would like to thank everyone for all their comments and all their support.
“It is absolutely unbelievable the amount of concern that people have for Jonjo.
“The doctors have said that the reason it happened and was so severe was because Jonjo was dehydrated and therefore there was not enough fluid around his brain to protect him.”

JONJO’S BROTHER: ‘WE’RE TAKING EACH DAY AS IT COMES’
THE family of a Burton boxer said there was ‘no change’ in his condition as he prepared to spend a fifth day in intensive care.
Jonjo Finnegan remains in a medically induced coma at Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre following a lifesaving operation on Friday night after being knocked to the canvas by a right hook from Ryan Clark at Burton Town Hall.
His brother Frank, of Stretton, said: “He is still stable and has still not woken up.
“It is a waiting game and we are taking each day as it comes.”
The 32-year-old suffered a bleed to his brain and required oxygen in the ring for 10 minutes before being rushed to hospital for emergency brain surgery.
He was knocked down in the sixth round of the International Masters’ super-middleweight title fight, with the referee immediately calling for medical assistance.
Members of the public and fellow boxers headed for social networking site Twitter to offer their support.
Former Birmingham City midfielder turned boxer Curtis Woodhouse has vowed to give 50 per cent of his purse from his next fight to support Mr Finnegan’s family.
He said: “I’ll donate 50 per cent of my purse in September to Jonjo’s family — we all need to stick together in tough times. It hits home, this is a dangerous sport. Let’s get something going and all try to do our bit.”
Woodhouse is due to fight Dave Ryan in Rotherham on September 28.
Another fighter, Jodie Meikle, has vowed to make the same gesture as Woodhouse.

You're absolutely right that I'm no medical man. I just posted what I saw. It sounds like you guys were on it and did everthing by the book and it looks like you've probably saved his life. As a fan standing ringside from my vantage point I just saw a couple of blokes spinning their t-shirts at him to cool him down and the time in the ring was disturbing to those of us in the crowd, however I fully accept what you've said that it was necessary and he clearly had the best care possible. Apologies if my post came across as having a dig, that wasn't the intention. I posted it very soon after it happened and was just very concerned with how things appeared to pan out, but you've put me right on that so fair play. Fingers crossed he gets back to full health.
