Mason Cartwright couldn’t resist showing off his battle scars following a ninth-round technical knockout loss to Darren Tetley in Leeds.
The 25 year-old from Ellesmere Port posted a video on his social media channels of a horrifically torn lip suffered during the late stoppage at Elland Road.

‘Nutty’ lost for the first time in his attempt to claim the WBO European welterweight title, having been dropped in the eighth before doctors waved off the fight upon inspection of the cut in the ninth.
Despite being badly banged up, Cartwright stated he’d have happily continued – even though his lip was sliced to his cheek and in dire need of medical attention.
Cartwright later re-posted after having had stitches to mend the ailment before heading home.
