British heavyweight boxer Jamie TKV experienced a horrifying defeat in his latest match after sustaining a gruesome eye injury that left him covered in blood. TKV, whose real surname is Tshikeva, was expected to secure his sixth victory at York Hall on Saturday night.
Shock Loss to Late Stand-In
However, his opponent, late replacement Igor Macedo from Brazil, delivered a savage right hand blow that caused TKV's eyebrow to explode with blood. The 29-year-old fighter immediately dropped his hands and blood started squirting down his face, prompting him to be taken to the hospital for stitches.
Possible Plastic Surgery and Career Rebuild
TKV, who had been receiving significant support from BOXXER promoters and Sky Sports, was clearly outmatched against Macedo, who had previously won all of his 11 matches by knockout. The young British boxer had previously spoken about his aspirations to fight fellow rivals Frazer Clarke and Fabio Wardley, but now he faces the possibility of plastic surgery on his eye and the need to rebuild his career.
Celebration and Stand-Out Performance by Macedo
Meanwhile, Macedo celebrated his stunning victory in the ring by being handed a bible and holding it aloft. TKV's defeat was further exacerbated by his slow start and inability to match Macedo's unpredictable style and powerful right hand punches.
Ultimately, it was a textbook one-two combination of a left jab and right hand that caused TKV's eyebrow to burst open. The referee quickly stopped the fight, allowing the battered British boxer to receive immediate medical attention.
