ENZO MACCARINELLI will make a decision over his future in the coming days after he suffered a horrific eye injury in his latest world title bid.

The Welsh light-heavyweight was pulled out by corner man Gary Lockett before the sixth round against WBA champion Juergen Braehmer in Rostock, Germany.

Maccarinelli, 33, suffered the gruesome injury in a crazy first round that also saw Braehmer cut above his right eye.

But the experienced German controlled the remaining rounds and, after the doctor allowed the fight continue following two inspections, Lockett threw in Maccarinelli's towel.

The coach said: "Enzo and I will sit down now and decide whether he wants to carry on with his career.

"Getting such an injury in the first round was really bad luck, and I wanted to give Enzo every chance. But by the end of the fifth round his face was just too swollen."

Former WBO cruiserweight champion Maccarinelli was hoping to become a two-weight world champion in what has been rollercoaster career.

This was his seventh defeat in 45 fights but fears that Maccarinelli would be outclassed by the WBA champion were unfounded.

The Swansea fighter looked more than capable for Braehmer in the early exchanges but as his face swelled up, the bout was always going away from him.

He said: "If the eye hadn't gone, I really believe I would have won."I just couldn't see him when he was moving, but I hurt him two or three times.

"It was definitely a clash of heads, it was in the first minute, I did his eye and he did mine.

"When it happened I thought he came off the worst."

I'd like to see a rematch. Shame a first round headbutt makes a title fight end that way. Enzo still has skills, and he wasn't KOd, so yeah, bring it on. The man's accomplished alot since his losing streak, to call it a day at this point.

Braehmer is such a turd.

Thats very possible... He did well despite the bad eye. landed good headshots and in the last round a left hook to brähmers body, which he felt... dude got power and a big heart

im pissed hearing a boxer's excuses in losing...take it like a real man, please don't find excuses...when you lose, lose, as simple as that...

I thought Enzo looked good, much better than I've seen him for a while anyway. Braehmer should give him a rematch, it's not like there's anyone else for him to fight.
