‘All the original stuff’s fell off [sic]. This is just the cast now. It was over here. I knew it’d come off after a couple of days.’
Later on, while lying down, Jack admitted: ‘I’m devastated I couldn’t fight on the card today. I put in so much hard work, I made the weight.
‘But, it’s just a minor setback, and I will be back. My nose… I’ll be able to train on it in two weeks time. And then yeh, I’ll have a fight early next year, 2021, so watch out for it!

Sharing a picture of bloody injury with one eye swollen shut, Jack wrote: ‘Well, the news is out – I’m not going to be able to fight at @Boxxer #TuesdayNightFightNight on @BT Sport / #ITV4 next week. I broke my nose badly in a recent car crash, can’t breathe through it – I’m going in for surgery tomorrow morning.
‘But I’m still going to be part of the show next Tuesday – I’ll be ringside with the #BOXXER team alongside @laylaannalee @paulmalignaggi @willperrytv @savagedan10 – and I will have a few things to say on the broadcast…
‘I’m gutted no in fact DEVASTATED because of the hard work I’ve put in and I want to say sorry to everyone who was looking forward to it. I want to thank my team, trainers and sponsors and I want to thank all of you for your support – I see it all and it means the world to me.

‘I’ll be out of action for a few weeks and then then back into full training. We’re going to set a new date for the fight and you’ll see me in the Boxxer ring early 2021 – this is just a speedbump, not a roadblock ;)’.
Jack later told fans on his Instagram Stories: ‘I’ve got to get my septum done and my nose re-broken so I can breathe through it properly.
‘I’m looking at this as a minor set back and I’m going to come back stronger. I’m still a pro boxer. I might even be a middle weight when I come back.

Late last month, Jack was taken to hospital following the car crash which damaged his £35K Mercedes E200 outside a pub in Dartford.
The incident – which marked his second crash in two months – has caused the boxer to trade in flashy automobiles for the silver van he drives his dogs in as he claimed he’s had ‘bad luck with cars since I was 19’.
Jack previously told The Sun: ‘My nose and head are really hurting as well as my neck. I’m going to the physio to have a look at it.

‘Unfortunately I was in a car accident. It’s all being dealt with. The airbag popped out straight in my face and unfortunately for me it was a lot harder than Barney’s punch to the nose. I literally just got that car, I’m absolutely devastated.
‘It just seems to be something that happens to me. I’m actually proper upset about it. When things are going really well for me, the universe goes: have that. It’s only a bit of metal isn’t it, at the end of the day?’
The TV star first addressed the crash on Instagram, where he said: ‘The day I’ve had… pulling into a car park to have something to eat, a Caesar salad in case anyone is interested… a car ploughed straight into my car as I indicated to go in there.’
Moments after the crash, Jack’s ex-girlfriend Connie O’Hara climbed across to leave by the driver side door.

Around 20 minutes later, police arrived, shortly followed by paramedics who treated the driver of the other vehicle, a Chrysler PT Cruiser at the scene.
He was spoken to by police as his vehicle was taken away in a tow truck. The Sun report that Jack was breathalysed at the scene and passed the test.
Traffic in the area came to a standstill for almost two hours as police dealt with the incident.
A representative for Kent Police told MailOnline: ‘Kent Police was called at 2pm on Sunday 18 October 2020 to a collision involving two cars on Leyton Cross Road, Dartford…
‘Officers and South East Coast Ambulance Service attended the scene where a person was treated for injuries before being taken to a local hospital.’

In August, Jack caused damage to a friend’s vehicle after crashing into their parked car when he was thrown out and banned from his local pub.
The former pen salesman was asked to leave the Bull’s Head in Chislehurst before hitting the Mercedes GLA that was stationary on the road outside.
A spokesman for Jack said at the time: ‘We can confirm Jack was in a small car collision at his local pub after he wasn’t allowed entry as he had not reserved a table in accordance with Covid regulations.
‘The car that Jack had an incident with had no one in it while it was parked, however Jack is friends with the owner.
‘The Met Police have dropped the incident as Jack and the car owner are resolving the small damage caused to the car between themselves directly.’
