“Sure, there have been injuries and deaths in boxing – but none of them serious.” Alan Minter.
Alan Minter is a former British middleweight boxer. He won bronze at the 1972 Munich Olympic Games. As a professional, he won the WBC and WBA Middleweight Championship of the World. He lost both titles against “Marvelous” Marvin Hagler in 1980. He retired one year later.

I'm sure that everybody who watched the episode of QI would agree with you.
Stephen Fry: [quoting boxer Alan Minter] Sure, there have been injuries and deaths in boxing, but none have been serious.
(Laughter from the panel and the audience).
An amazing thing for the boxer to say. I'm sure he didn't mean it to come out the way it did!!
