Photo: Kevin Mitchell's Gruesome Eye Injury After TKO

Jorge Linares successfully defended his WBC World Lightweight title in a helter-skelter clash with Kevin Mitchell at The O2 in London, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

The three-weight World champion was defending his belt for the first time but Mitchell looked set to take it from him, dropping the champion in the fifth, but terrible damage to Mitchell’s left eye hampered his attempts to win a World title at the third attempt, and when Linares dropped him in the tenth, referee Victor Loughlin stopped the contest with just three seconds left in the round – with Mitchell ahead on two cards and level on another.

It was a bad one. It was a great fight though. Both guys went down, both showed real skill and toughness and they really did gel stylistically. Stoppage was perfect, it couldn't continue. Big credit to both guys and big…
