Anthony Joshua ’ s trainer Rob McCracken insists the health of his boxers is of “ paramount importance ”.
McCracken told the BBC Boxing podcast he “knew Joshua was concussed ” from the third round against Andy Ruiz Jr in June, but let him fight on before his seventh- round loss.
Brain injury charity Headway called it a “shocking admission ”.
“I am not a doctor and it may be that concussed is not the right term to have used , ” McCracken said on Thursday .
“ The health of all the boxers I work with is of paramount importance to me and I have always used my judgement and experience to do what is right for them.
“ There is no formal concussion protocol where the doctor steps in to assess the boxer so you have to use your experience as a coach and your knowledge of the person to make a decision on whether you think they can recover.
“ I have had this a number of times in my career in professional boxing where boxers have recovered from a difficult round to go on and win the fight . ”
