Over the weekend (Sat. January 19, 2019) the talk of the boxing world was Manny Pacquiao’s victory over Adrien Broner. “Pac-Man” successfully defended his WBA welterweight championship for the first time since winning it last year. However, in the fight prior, a gruesome light heavyweight contest went down. Marcus Browne defeated Badou Jack via unanimous decision.
But Jack took a bad beating during the fight, especially after a terrible cut that opened up on his forehead during the contest. Blood poured down Jack’s head in an atrocious amount and even stained referee Tony Weeks’ shirt:

Jack shared the following picture of himself after getting the cut stitched up on his Instagram account:
“I would like to thank all of the fans for your support! The cut was a nasty one, but I’m fine now, alhamdulillah. Congrats to @mbrowne718 who fought a great fight. Regardless of the cut he was the better man tonight. I am a warrior and will never quit, but didn’t realize the severity of the gash. I dedicated this fight to the refugee children across the world who fight a much tougher fight than I did tonight. I will continue to fight for them until the end, In shaa Allah. Alhamdulillah for everything.”
