Stefy Bull has provided further updates on X. Bull confirmed that Connor Coghill’s boxing career has unfortunately ended, with Coghill retiring with a professional record of 14-1. Coghill primarily fought in Yorkshire competing in Sheffield, Hull, Barnsley and Doncaster. In 2019 Coghill grabbed a spot in 2019 at the 02 Arena fighting on the undercard of Charlie Edwards vs Julio Cesar Martinez, defeating Dean Jones. He achieved further success when he defeated Kane Salvin 97-95 to secure the British Central Area Featherweight title, the first of his career.

Bull also more importantly confirmed that there are hopes of making a full recovery. This is extremely positive news given the gravity of the injury sustained by Coghill.

The bout between Connor Coghill and Hopey Price featured on the undercard of Leigh Wood vs Josh Warrington in Sheffield on 07 October 2023. The action was hard-hitting throughout and Coghill accumulated a lot of damage. Price also struck Coghill on the ground with an unprotected head shot in the eleventh round.

Coghill was competitive but he sustained four knockdowns over the 12 round distance, and the bout was waved off with 90 seconds remaining after the two knockdowns in quick succession.

Best wishes go out to Connor during his recovery. His injury is a reminder of the constant risk boxers put themselves in each and every time they step into the ring.
