JONO CARROLL has revealed the gruesome reality of what he has to do to avoid taking painkillers after every fight.
The Irish boxer is still revelling in his win over Miguel Marriaga this month, but has shown what he has had to do to recover from the bout.
Jono Carroll boasts a 24-2-1 record and has won seven of his fights by knockout
He is currently ranked 11th by the International Boxing Federation
The 30-year-old took to Instagram to explain to his followers that he has to drain the fluid and blood out of his hand during camps and after fights.
And he posted a video that is not for the faint-hearted.
He said: “These are the gross things people don’t see, I need to do this sh*t during camp and after fights just to keep my hands ok,
“If I don’t do this I’m eating pain killers non stop, the things I do for this sport, just a boy chasing a dream.”
The technique is called wet cupping and it is an old medical technique used to reduce inflammation and draw out blood from the area.
It is very similar to the process of cupping, commonly used within sports such as swimming, where glass cups are applied to create a suction effect to help with inflammation, increasing blood circulation and reduce pain.
Wet cupping involves making a small puncture in the skin before allowing the suction to then draw out fluids and blood from the required area.

A large lump and then bruise is left behind from the cup once the treatment is finished
Both types of cupping often leave large circular bruises on the skin of the person getting the treatment.
Although the technique sounds and looks strange it is very common in the world of sport.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the differences between different types of boxing gloves
There are three main types in boxing gloves: mitts; fingerless mitts; and full-fingerered. There is padding around the fingers of mitten gloves. Fingerless mitts do not have padding around the knuckles, but they still cover the fingers. Full-fingered gloves have padding around the entire hand.
For punching with the fist, mittens can be used. Fingerless mitt gloves are used for punching or striking with the knuckle of the index finger. Boxing gloves for full-finger punching can be obtained with full-fingered hands.
How can I practice boxing defense by myself?
Boxing has been around since the dawn of time. Boxing is also one of most difficult sports to learn. You can’t just punch someone across the face and make him go away. You need to know how you can defend yourself against punches or kicks.
The first thing you need to do is find a boxing gym near you. Once you have located a good gym, you can get gloves and headgear. Gloves protect you hands while the helmet protects your head. Shorts and a Tshirt are also required.
Once you’ve gathered all your equipment, it’s time for you to start warming up. Start off slowly and gradually work your way up to full speed. Once you feel comfortable, go for it and spar with another boxer. Do not worry if you make a mistake. It doesn’t matter if you fail, just keep trying until you succeed.
How do boxers train for beginners?
Although boxing is one the oldest sports, it has only recently been rediscovered as a popular sport. Boxing is a sport where two fighters face off against each other in a ring. They punch each other until one fighter falls down.
To become a boxer, you must first find out what boxing is like. You can view some fights on YouTube to experience what it’s like to punch someone. Once you have decided that boxing is for you, you can decide what style of fight you prefer.
