A senior sports broadcaster is in an Auckland hospital with a brain injury after a boxing match last weekend.

Stephen McIvor, a sports anchor with Sky Television, has suffered bleeding on the brain.

He took part in a celebrity boxing match at a charity Fight for Life event on 14 December against a fellow journalist, and told his employers he thinks the injury might have stemmed from that.

Mr McIvor tweeted that he had an MRI scan on Friday.
