AUSTRALIAN boxer Billy McAllister sustained a 3cm injury to his left eye after he clashed with Jerone Ellis from Jamaica in their Commonwealth Games match.

Monday night's 16th bout between the light-heavyweights was halted at the end of the final round due to an infuriating blow to the face by the Aussie.




Boxer Billy McAllister was 3cm above his left eye after a fight against Jerone Ellise in Jamaica.



After the injury, the light-heavyweight fight had to be stopped in the third round.



Ellis, an Australian ace, lost in a split decision to the judges scorecards

McAllister was eliminated from the running for the Commonwealth medal in Birmingham. The fight went to the judges scorecards.

Ellis was declared the victor in a close 3-2 split decision verdict. McAllister received the second round from all five judges.

This premature end will likely lead to calls for headguards being reintroduced in the wake of the IBA's decision to scrap them after competition at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Boxers are now more likely to get cut after the headguards were removed. Their eyebrow area was not protected during clinches, making them more susceptible to injury.

Even though elite amateur female boxers do not require headguards, they are required to fight.

McAllister was not required to go to the hospital, even though he left behind a bloody mess.

McAllister's loss has not been the only thing that's talked about at the Commonwealth Games so-far.

After being accidentally punched during a super-heavyweight men's showdown, a female referee displayed her granite chin.

An official was directing a fight between Maxime Yegnong Najieyo from Cameroon and Sagar Ahlawat from India when she became closer to the action.

Yegnong Nyo loaded up a massive left hook only to have it go horribly wrong.

His momentum was so strong that he missed Ahlawat and swung right into the face of the referee.

Amazingly, she didn't blink, and took the blow with incredible poise before continuing to fight.

Yegnong Nyieyo was unable to score as many hard shots against his opponent and lost comfortably.
