Jaime Munguia Busts Tureano Johnson's Lip In One Of Boxing's Most Gruesome Injuries
Jaime Munguia sealed a sensational sixth-round victory after busting Tureano Johnson's lip with a single uppercut in their boxing match on Friday night.
The duo faced off in middleweight action at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in California and it was a close contest.
Johnson was in a strong position halfway through the fight, but it would all change in an instant after Munguia's ferocious strike.
He unleashed a uppercut that left damage so big, Johnson's corner thought it was an illegal headbutt.

Doctors checked Johnson out as the sixth round came to a close and replays confirmed it was from Munguia's shot, giving the 24-year-old victory via stoppage.
Fans have reacted to the injury and they think it's one of the most gruesome they've ever seen.
Look closely at the repeat. Did I just see a piece of lip fly up in the air? Seriously, that was a vicious uppercut!

You could say Tureano Johnson has a strong chin but not a very strong lip

Munguia's record now stands at 36-0 and he could be in line for a shot at WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo or WBO middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade.
The 40-year-old took on Jairzinho Rozenstruik at UFC on ESPN 7 in December and was on route to securing a decision victory.
But Rozenstruik fought back in the fifth and final round and unloaded two devastating punches on 'Demolition Man' with four seconds left in the fight.

'Bigi Boy' nailed Overeem with a shot to the left of the face before hitting him with a powerful right, which caused his top lip to split.
Referee Dan Miragliotta immediately leapt into action and called the fight in favour of Rozenstruik.
