The 30-year-old McKinnon was listed in a serious but stable condition in Waikato Hospital.

McKinnon and Berridge were knocked down in the fight that Berridge won by a technical knockout in the 10th round.

McKinnon complained of head pain about 15 minutes after the fight and was rushed to hospital.

His manager, Ken Reinsfield, said McKinnon's condition improved after surgery ''but he is not out of the woods. He's doing better this morning than he was last night.''
