“This Sport Is Tougher Than I Thought”- British Boxer Says As He Shows Off His Injuries

British boxer, Conor Benn, has shown the horrific injuries he sustained after beating his French opponent, Cedrick Paynaud on Wednesday night.

The 21 year old light welterweight, who is the son of former middleweight and super middleweight world champion boxer Nigel Benn, suffered a difficult fight last night.

He got knocked down twice to the canvas in the opening round of the fight, but recovered to emerge victorious at the York Hall.

Benn, whose left eye was cut and his right eye badly swollen by the end, won the fight by 57-54.

He took to his Twitter page to show off his injuries and wrote;

‘This sport is tougher than I thought. Bloody hell. Love to my supporters! See you next year!’
