Trowbridge boxer Nick Blackwell has revealed that his heart stopped before he was put into an induced coma which ultimately saved his life.
Blackwell flatlined in an ambulance after the British Middleweight bout in March which left him fighting for his life.
The fight was stopped in the 10th round, and the boxer taken to an ambulance where he collapsed and "died".
Blackwell, who can remember nothing of the fight or his subsequent injury, was saved when a doctor injected adrenaline into his heart, and placed him into a coma.
The boxer says he was only told of the horrors after waking up.
I passed out, into the ambulance, and I flatlined, so I died for a little while.
The 25 year-old was also critical of his opponent, Chris Eubank Junior, for holding a press conference in the immediate aftermath - despite pleas from Blackwell's family not to.

This year's cricket T20 Blast began tonight, with Gloucestershire and Somerset both in action. It's the competition that makes the counties the most money, with sell-out crowds expected in Bristol and Taunton.
Somerset began with an away game in Kent tonight - losing by 8 wickets.
Gloucestershire started at home against Sussex, using their controversial floodlights for the first time. There has been lots of opposition to the lights that can be seen from around the city.
One resident told ITV News, "I think they're necessary for the cricket ground to get the matches they need to remain competitive. Without them we're told that they wouldn't get the games that they need. Unfortunately it does have a bit of a detrimental impact on the residents".
But tonight the main talking point was the rain - the match was abandoned and Sussex won by one run according to the Duckworth-Lewis method.
