Former world champion David Haye says he will donate 10% of the tickets sales from his upcoming fight to Trowbridge boxer Nick Blackwell.

Blackwell was placed in a coma after suffering bleeding on the brain following his defeat to Chris Eubank Jr on Saturday.

The British middleweight title bout was stopped in the 10th round after the ringside doctor advised the referee Blackwell was unable to see through his left eye.

David Haye will be taking on Arnold Gjergjaj in May.
