Ballarat boxing trainer Ian Fear is recovering after being sidelined by a debilitating illness.
Fear, 72, had part of his left leg amputated after suffering a heart attack and spending 11 days in a coma.
He said he had emerged from an extended stay in hospital still keen to promote boxing in Ballarat.
Fear said his Ballarat Boxing Academy continued to operate with help from some of his “boys”, with 11 young boxers working on their craft.
