Fighting on the Manny Pacquiao vs Adrien Broner undercard last night former world champion Badou Jack could have suffered one of the worst injuries in recent boxing memory.
Granted, he lost a unanimous points decision in the end to Marcus Browne, but the fact Jack completed the full duration at all was a remarkable testament to his courage and resolve.
A truly incredible injury that Jack has now posted the full details of on social media as well as updating his fans as to how post-fight surgery went:
Scrolling through the above pictures really makes for grim viewing but in fairness the surgery appears to have went well at least to repair the damaged tissue on the forehead.
That said, expect a lengthy lay off from the ring for the Swedish boxer after that type of injury.
Possibly one of the worst injuries ever seen in a boxing ring. Certainly in recent times.
His record following the defeat now moves to 22-2-3-13KO but his stock will have only risen after such a gutsy display where he once again put his heart on full display for fight fans.
