Squeamish? Look away now. Not because of the pics from last night’s fight but because I might vomit into this article at some point.
Yeah so Badou Jack got a bit of a nick on his forehead last night in his Pacquiao-Broner undercard fight with Marcus Browne.
35-year-old Swede, Jack was headbutted in the seventh round and continued to fight on for the distance.

However for all his efforts the judges awarded the fight to Browne (117-110, 116-111 and 119-110) marking the Ripper’s second loss of his career.
More worryingly was the rip on the Ripper’s forehead.
Don’t know why you’d even click on this if you’re not prepared to see some grizzle. You ready? Alright, let’s do this:

"You're letting him off the hook"
"You look good"
"He's ready to get disqualified!"

In the main event Pacquiao defeated Broner, defending his WBA (Regular) Welterweight title via unanimous decision (117-111, 116-112, 116-112).
Broner landed just three body shots to Pacquiao’s 47, but that didn’t stop him from claiming he thought the fight was his in the post-match interview.
I beat him, everybody out there knows I beat him!
Everybody out there knows I beat him, I controlled the fight, he was missing, I hit him plenty more times. I beat him.
When it was put to Broner he’d averaged less than eight punches a round, he didn’t take too kindly.

It already sounds like you were against me, so I haven’t got a fair shake talking to you.
Let me talk something… I want to thank the whole hood who came out here. I love y’all. I did this for the hood, you know I beat that boy.
They trying to get that money again with Pacquiao and Floyd, but it’s cool, I ain’t worried about it I’m still that n***** man. I’m on top Cincinnati stand up, westside. Two-five.
By this morning things were looking better for Badou Jack after being stitched up.
