IN PICS: Boxing's five worst injuries

Sport360 staff 10/03/2017

The sport of Boxing has seen some horrific injuries in its history, a very natural result of two people beating each other up in a ring.

From giant cuts and bruises to broken bones all over the body, there are numerous examples of boxers going through hell in their profession.

From Evander Holyfield being bitten by Mike Tyson in an epic clash to Vitali Klitschko suffering a massive cut above his eye against Lennox Lewis, here are the five worst boxing injuries ever.

EVANDER HOLYFIELD

This list has to start with the most famous injury of all, with Mike Tyson biting off Holyfield’s ear in their 1997 bout.

RICHARD GRANT

He suffered a post-fight broken jaw after James Butler sucker punched him following their 10-round fight in 2001.

FRANKIE CAMPBELL

Arguably the most gruesome injury ever suffered in a ring, he literally had his brain knocked loose from his skull in 1930.

VITALI KLITSCHKO

The Ukrainian was left extremely bloody when Lennox Lewis gave him a major cut above his eye in a 2003 fight.

HASIM RAHMAN

There’s swelling and then there’s what Rahman suffered when Evander Holyfield gave him this football-sized lump.

In an interview with CNN, ONE FC star Angela Lee sits down to set the record straight on her incredible journey so far.

And there is obviously a lot to come from the Canada-born fighter who, at just 20-years-old, is one of the most exciting fighters in the world.

Born to a Singaporean father and South Korean mother and having moved to Hawaii at just seven years of age, Lee has a cosmopolitan background.

She is also the elder sister of Christian Lee, who also fights in ONE FC.
That's a family you certainly wouldn't want to get into a sibling rivalry with.

“If Conor McGregor really wants this fight to happen, stop blowing smoke up everybody’s ass,” Mayweather told ESPN, accusing the Irishman of stalling on a deal.

“Sign the paper. Sign the paper. You said you were boss, so just sign the paper and let’s make it happen.”

Speculation of a fight between retired former boxing welterweight king Mayweather and McGregor has intensified in recent months.

In February, a report in Ireland said the two sides had agreed terms and were only awaiting the resolution of a “third party hold-up” to confirm the deal.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission also confirmed it was aware of negotiations between Mayweather and McGregor.

Mayweather, who retired undefeated in September 2015 with a perfect 49-0 record, has said he is willing to fight McGregor in a boxing ring.

However McGregor, 28, is under contract to the Ultimate Fighting Championship, who would have to sign off on the bout for it to happen.
