Light heavyweight contender Badou Jack (22-2-3, 13 KOs) lost to Marcus Browne (23-0, 16 KOs) in the co-main event of Manny Pacquiao vs. Adrien Broner. Jack started slowly as usual, then things got a whole lot worse when an accidental clash of heads in round seven opened up the nastiest of cuts.

Incredibly, Jack went the distance despite getting hurt multiple times while his face got turned into a crimson mask. It was a bloodbath that had referee Tony Weeks completely soaked in Jack’s blood when all was said and done.

Now we turn our attention to what the cut looked like. Again, it’s already been noted multiple times that what you’re going to see is quite graphic. Here’s one picture, and one video to sum up everything.

You ready? Here we go.

Yikes.

Jack has since released a statement on Instagram, thankfully all stitched up after his hospitalization.

“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.”

This loss was a significant setback for Jack, who would’ve been a mandatory challenger to WBC champion Oleksandr Gvozdyk. Browne gets the shot instead, and if you thought Greg Hardy was the only person with a domestic violence past taking up a co-main slot on Saturday night, you were wrong.
