Boxing match STOPPED after fighter suffers horror head injury as he is left with blood pouring down face | The Sun

BOXER Wendy Toussaint was pulled out of his fight against Ardreal Holmes Jr after suffering a horror eye gash.

An accidental clash of heads in round eight left Toussaint unable to continue boxing as blood poured down his face.

Due to the injury being caused accidentally and not by a blow, the bout was halted and taken to judges scorecards at the time.

Two had Holmes, 28, controversially in front, with the other leaning towards Toussaint, 31.

As a result, Holmes was declared a technical split-decision victor, which drew a furious reaction from the booing audience.

In the night's main event, women's boxing star Claressa Shields remained unbeaten by defeating Maricela Cornejo, 36.

Shields, who returned home to Detroit, retained her undisputed middleweight championship with a shut-out decision.

She said: "You saw the best of me tonight.

"The only thing I could have done better than I did tonight was get a knockout, and I think I would have knocked a lot of girls out with the punches I landed. Maricela is smart and she's tough."

Shields, 28, teased a move back to MMA where she is signed to the Professional Fighters League and has a 1-1 record in the cage.
