Germany's Eduard Gutknecht remains in a coma 12 days after his defeat by George Groves, the British fighter says.

Gutknecht, who needed surgery after the fight, is in a "stable condition", says the British Boxing Board of Control.

The 34-year-old fell ill in his changing room following his defeat on 18 November, and was taken to hospital.

Groves, who beat Gutknecht to retain his WBA International super-middleweight title, has set up a fund to help the boxer and his family.

"He is still in hospital in a coma after having surgery the night of our fight 12 days ago," wrote Groves on Twitter.

Groves scored a unanimous points win in the fight at Wembley's SSE Arena.

Hopefully he will pull through and live a decent quality of life unlike previous boxer's Fingers Crossed

I donate plenty of money to good causes..

While I hope this guy recovers..I'm tired of contender vs stiff..

Groves can give his payday to this guy.

So sad, it was clear this fight should have been stopped before the 9th, blame his corner for that one

They had an excuse as well, his eye was swelled terribly

Sad news but this happens and a higher chance when not pulled from a fight you're never winning.

Accumulation of beatings probably took its toll..He didn't have much defence..

But you're right...History shows that the "Hail Mary" seldom happens for big punchers taking a beating let alone for Blackwell and Gutknecht types.

Save it for a another day..

Exactly, his corner didn't

It wasn't like he was a one punch KO artist either....
