Boxing champion Jeff Fenech said he fears for his life after he was struck down by pneumonia while at a boxing retreat in Thailand.

The 55-year-old said he was extremely concerned he will miss his daughter Jessica's wedding in Australia.

'Every night I have been here I think I'm not going to wake up tomorrow,' he told the Sunday Telegraph.

Fenech also has a lung infection, pain in his limbs and is coughing up blood.

His wife, Suzee, is waiting to be given the all-clear to jump on a plane to Bangkok so she can take Fenech home to Australia.

Fenech has been in Thailand since last Tuesday with other boxers for a training camp but his health quickly deteriorated and he was taken to hospital.

'Then all of a sudden, the ambulance came. The lady said: "I can't tell you what would have happened if you didn't come to hospital". It wouldn't have been good news,' Fenech said.

He said he finds it impossible to sleep as he is in so much pain.

Fenech had begun complaining to his wife about the pain before he left - a sign she now said should have made him stay home.
