What are your favourite "injuries"?

 

A few to get starts:

Rahman's "bump"

Those photos of Vitali's eye sum up to me why fans who claim Lewis was lucky against VK are utterly deluded. VK ended up like that because he didn't get out of the way of punches, no headbutts involved. Seems pretty obvious that even if he wasn't knocked over he was battered. Imagine that had gone on until the twelfth...

was the controversy not based around the tape on the glove causing it?

His gloves were taped as per the rules of the fight so that can hardly be controversial. Unfortunate perhaps.

Yes and no - it started as a nasty cut but then the thumb joint opn Lewis's glove happened to land on VK'as face in such as way that it sort of dragged through the cut and made it far, far worse. Very unlucky really, but then I've always said the VK-Lewis fight is a "what if?" situation - I hate seeing people saying "Lewis was about to knock him out" or "Vitali would have won" because nobody knows, we just know Lewis won fair and square and then acted like a complete arse to Vitali thereafter.

They're all pretty gruesome. Lujan's ear was the first injury that sprang to mind.

 

Others i can think of: Ali's broken jaw (against Norton, if i remember right), Abraham's broken jaw (against Miranda) and Israel Vasquez' bloody eyes against Marquez in their 3rd fight.

 

Yeah, Abraham's was quite horrific. I still think the fight should have been stopped, but fair play to the guy for fighting most of the fight with a broken jaw

I don't remember any controversy about butts or tape or anything else. The only fuss was that Vitali wanted to fight on which is a credit to him. Though the momentum in the fight had turned.
