As Nick Blackwell lies in an induced coma in a London hospital following a brutal middleweight title fight, a heavy sense of deja vu is hanging over British boxing.By the end of the eighth round, Blackwell was in a bad state with his left eye closed and swollen.The fight continued to the 10th round, when it was stopped after the ringside doctor advised the referee that Blackwell was unable to see through his left eye. Minutes later, Blackwell fell to the floor in the ring and was taken to hospital.The BBC reported late Sunday that surgeons are not planning to operate on Blackwell.Unlike during Watson's darkest moment 25 years ago, there were medical professionals on hand for prompt treatment for Blackwell.
