Damn Jab, way to end the thread in the 1st post.
Was there something going on with Erne's gloves or was it just a freak injury ?.

Lol, let me re-check the chapter in the Gans bio I have and I'll get back with you on this one! I believe it was a freak injury though. I don't recall them saying anything about cheating or such.

Ok, Im back. There were several different reports, one being that the eye had popped out and a doctor had to get in the ring and pop it back in. Another says it was severely cut. The funny thing is Nat Fleischer (the so called leading authority on boxers) labeled Gans a quitter because of this. The funny thing is he would later rate him the greatest of all lightweight and proclaim no man fought a tougher path to the title than any other fighter ever.

Frankie Campbell got killed by Baer. What was interesting was that the doctor reported he had died of multiple hemorrhages . His brain was almost loose from the tissues. This was unreal. Tribute to Baers power.

Hatchetman Sheppard--
"Remember Big Boy Brown, that pawing 260-pound cousin of Joe Louis? Curtis actually crushed Brown's chin so severely that surgeons had to wire the parts together."

Benny "Kid" Paret was a Cuban boxer who won the welterweight title for the first time in 1960, but lost it seven months later when Emile Griffith knocked him out. His last fight against Griffith occurred on March 24, 1962. In the twelfth round of the fight, Griffith hit Paret twenty-nine times in a row, and eighteen times in six seconds, when Paret was lying against the ropes before referee Ruby Goldstein stopped the fight. Paret went into a coma after the fight, and died ten days later.

Billy Collins Jr lost his vision in a fight. His opponent cheated and had removed his padding.

This kind of events make one sad...when someone dies or loses sight, its not okay.

very recently miguel cotto hit ricardo mayorga so hard on the chin that he broke mayorga's hand :rofl:



and then mayorga ripped the thing out of his glove, moved it around a bit, and then kept on claiming it was broken.

classic. also incredible

Schmelings back was fractured in the second Louis fight.

Sure something happened to Golota's neck in the Tyson bout.

Max claimed the punch that did that to him also caused him to go blind for a few moments from the severity of the pain.

Poor Ken Buchannan was relieved of his world title when Roberto Duran stopped him with a perfectly aimed punch to the groin back in 1972.

Ken still feels pain when he urinates to this day!!

Since I can't possibly compete with Joe Gans' eyeball, I'll just throw out Odlanier Solis as a recent example.The guy got his biggest fight and then collapsed like a shot rhino in the 1st round.

Kermit cintron propelled himelf through the ropes after tripping over pwill and received a compound fracture to his vagina....


Cintron also performed the most amazing persuasion job ever in the ring when he talked himself out of a knockout with the ref who already declared him ko'd

"Frank Erne, who was also considered to be among the best fighters of any weight class at that time. They met on March 23, 1900 in New York. One modern writer mistakenly said Gans was “winning easily when he suffered a cut over his eye and abruptly quit” and “it buttressed the claims of those who said the fix was in.” Not so. According to researcher Arne Steinberg Gans eye was actually protruding from his eye socket! A vicious head butt had left Gans eye hanging on his face. The Chicago Times-Herald, Mar 24, reported “Baltimore man's eye dislodged from its socket by a head on collision.” The San Francisco Chronicle Mar 24, 1900, confirmed that, “Gans eye was started from its socket.” This was also reported by the Boston Globe. With such a horrendous injury Gans had no choice but to quit as one blow to his eye in that exposed position would have left him permanently blind."

it was acctually julian jackson who did the damage to mcclellan in their first fight, which makes it an even more unbelievable injury.

gerald suffered dizzieness, lack of vision, headache and other symptoms after their fight and had a huge lump on his head which his sister (a nurse) begged him to get checked out before he fougth again.

he even collapsed in a sparring session similar to the benn fight except he pulled through. and all his next fights were so brief he never got re injured, as would the benn fight had it not been for the ref. once he started taking accumulated punishment.. well we all know what happened then.

there are rumours gerald failed his physicals after the jackson fight only to have don king bribe him into the ring regardless, that has never been confirmed though.

Honnorable mention to the faces of Pipino Cuevas' opponents! Broken eye sockett and jaws. He broke the jaws of two consecutive title challengers!

Gray- broken jaw
Weston-broken ribs and jaw

That is unbelievable.

There should be an embed code beneath the video, just copy and paste it on here.

They don't compare to some of the other stories, but two I watched live were Sebastian Lujan's ear against Margarito and Jorge Barrios' lip against Rocky Juarez.
