Amir Mansour: I Couldn’t Breathe in TKO Loss to Breazeale

by David P. Greisman

Amir Mansour was winning against Dominic Breazeale when he decided to remain on his stool before the sixth round began. The broadcasters afterward said that the heavyweight had suffered a fully fractured jaw, but the 43-year-old soon took to social media to say that there was another injury that led to his decision.

“Around the 2nd round, i got hit with my tongue positioned in between my teeth,” Mansour posted on Facebook. “My mouth piece is fitted for my upper teeth only. Anyway, I bit my damn tongue almost completely in half. (Yes it was painful) so then my damn tongue swelled up so bad, that i literally could not breath, not to mention swallowing so much blood . Been battling a little cold so breathing thru my nose wasnt working. I was suffocating...literally. Got a pretty decent injury to my jaw as well, getting that checked out. #‎hurtbusiness”

Mansour fell to 22-2-1 with 16 KOs. Breazeale was fortunate but also was able to survive some tough moments against Mansour, including getting off the canvas from a third-round knockdown. He is now 17-0 with 15 KOs.

I was rooting for Mansour even though it was the first time I'd watched him. Something about guys like Mansour who are hungry, just make them instantly likeable. I've never seen anyone go for a win like that since Bert…
