On the undercard of the Josh Warrington v Lee Selby world title contest at Elland Road, Leeds, Mason Cartwright, and Darren Tetley faced off for the vacant WBO European Welterweight title in a scheduled 10 round fight.

A thrilling contest saw Cartwright take an early lead in the fight, however, Tetley found a way back into the fight as Cartwright slowed down, Tetley dropped Cartwright in the 8th round and also inflicted a cut on the left side of Cartwright’s lip.

Following a doctor’s inspection, the fight was waved off handing Tetley a 9th round TKO victory and sending Cartwright to the hospital to receive stitches as you can see from the boxer’s updates on Twitter below.

As do many fighters Cartwright stated he wanted to continue “If it was up to me I would have faught (sic) the 10th round all day”. However, given the injury, it was probably a wise decision by the ringside doctor.

Thankfully Cartwright has been treated and stitched up, as the boxer gave an update following his treatment at the hospital.

A Cartwright v Tetley rematch would certainly be welcomed down the line once Cartwright is fully recovered as both boxers seemed to gel for a very entertaining contest.
