Flap over ring doctor at Minto-Cameron fight

When heavyweight Shane Cameron was ready to have two deep cuts stitched up after his loss to Brian Minto, there was no one who could do it. According to, there was only a retired doctor on duty who had no equipment. Cameron eventually received nine stitches at his home from another doctor. The Cameron camp isn’t happy about the situation. “He had no idea,” Cameron’s manager Ken Reinsfield told “If [the doctor] didn’t understand what was going on with the cuts, how would he know about a bleed on the brain? It’s certainly not good and I don’t want it to happen again…it’s important the guy ringside is competent. I was shocked when I found out he wasn’t registered.”
