Bangkok: A Muay Thai kickboxer has suffered a horrible skull injury after he was elbowed on the forehead during a contest in Thailand.
The injury, which occurred at the Patong Stadium in Thailand on Monday, required the French fighter Jeremy to have surgery to his forehead.
Surprisingly however, Jeremy didn’t stop fighting straight away after the nasty elbow and continued the fight until the referee halted the contest
The French fighter’s surgery was a success as he had a titanium plate fitted in his skull where the bone had collapsed, and he is now out of hospital.
Jonny Betts, a Kickboxer who trains at the Tiger Muay Thai gym in Phuket, was the one who revealed Jeremy’s gruesome injury on Facebook.
‘Bit of a nasty injury caused by a big elbow on Monday night at Patong stadium,’ he wrote.
‘He had surgery last night, wish him a quick recovery!’
Betts also claims that Jeremy was not even dizzy after being elbowed.
‘His Thai opponent landed a big elbow strike that caused the injury,’ he told Sportbible. ‘He was fine, though. He wasn’t wobbled and kept fighting, but the referee stopped the fight to get a doctor to look at the injury and the doctor obviously stopped it right away.
