Boxer Mason Cartwright reveals horror torn lip hanging off face after being rushed to hospital for stitches following Darren Tetley loss

The 25-year-old needed urgent stitches last night after going nine rounds at Elland Road.




After suffering the first defeat of his career, the welterweight star uploaded a gruesome video on Twitter of himself immediately after the contest.

With moans of disgust heard in the background, Cartwright can be seen poking his tongue through his split upper lip after the WBO European title scrap.

Captioning the video, 'Nutty' wrote: "If it was up to me I would have faught the 10th round all day, show my boxing ability I’ll be back."

Tetley replied to his post, saying: "This shows you really are nutty aha speedy recovery mate was respect before an even more after all the best to you an your family mate."


The duo then vowed to get it on again after their epic battle on the undercard of Josh Warrington's IBF featherweight title fight against Lee Selby.

Cartwright uploaded a further video of himself today after receiving stitches with his lip remarkably looking in pristine condition.

Addressing the fans, he said: "I want to say to everyone just a big thank you for coming out and supporting me last night, and all the good luck messages and all the get well soon messages.

"As you can see I'm not too bad now, my lip is stitched up good, the bruising has gone down – it looked worse than what it was.


"I'm gutted obviously that I didn't get to dance in that last round, because I was one round away from becoming a WBO European title holder.

"So I'm gutted to say the least, but I'll come back stronger."
