No I'm not talking about Paulie Malignaggi's various hair do's, but the worst facial cuts that you have witnessed throughout the history of boxing.

An obvious one would be Vitali Klitschko against Lennox Lewis, but what others can you add?

Cheers

Ouch that's horrific, though I must admit I wasn't sure what to expect when you said 'Winky's eye' - bit dodgy..

Valero got a horrible cut to the top of his forehead from an elbow(Demarco fight I think). If the cut had been anywhere is the doc would have called the fight off!

Vasquez (as always) received terrible cuts in his last fight against Marquez which on top of his previous wars ended his career.

Vitali's cuts against Lewis were pretty nasty from what I remember.

Seen a picture also of Marciano with a split nostril against Ezzard Charles me thinks, that looked horrid.

Was just gonna say Marciano's nose. Worst cut I've seen, and possibly the most unusual too.

MMA ones will of course be worse, as they knee people in the head when they are lying on the floor amongst other such equally skillful moves.

I reckon a lot would allow him to fight to the finish, it’s not affecting his vision.

Morales and Wolak were allowed to finish a fight where they couldn’t see out of an eye.

Don't spend enough time on a computer to be competent at it. Although, that's hardly a bad thing.

I'm still b******* this up. So for the sake of argument, Vitali's face was pretty horrific. Were I to describe it, I would say it his face was hanging off somewhat and he was bathed in blood.

I will now delete aforementioned attempts to host a picture and run away, somewhat chastened, from the world of internet picture hosting.

This one is seldom mentioned in these debates, but combined with the fact that Jones Jr gassed pretty badly and so his mouth was hanging open - this one looked pretty awful:
Spoiler:

Worst cuts you've seen in boxing Roy-jones-jr-cut-eye

Once enlarged, I feel the image perfectly reflects how much of the ear was missing. Any smaller or larger and the effect would be lost. Artistic privilege, old boy.

Was good of Tyson not to eat it, I suppose.

On a different note - did anyone see that Tyson was one of the celebrity "roasters" of Charlie Sheen on some US TV thing? He wasn't nearly as bad as I thought he'd be.

Yeah. Probably for the best, really. You can't be 100kg and built like a tank for ever. Sometimes you just have to slim down. Just ask Truss.

Don't 'face-palm' too hard you might cut yourself. Happens when you're least expecting it, ask Vitali.
