A pro boxer’s face swelled up in terrifying fashion after she was hit by an accidental head-butt during a fight Saturday night … but fortunately, she says she’s now recovering well.
Cheyenne Hanson, a 23-year-old German fighter, suffered the horrific battle wounds during her tilt with Alina Zaitseva in Germany … with her face ballooning in size after the two women inadvertently clashed heads.
The post-fight pics of the damage to Hanson’s face were insane … the left side of the fighter’s face BLEW UP — and she had bruising all over.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
In fact, Hanson showed off a before-and-after, side-by-side photo — and she was damn-near unrecognizable!!!
But, Hanson on Monday revealed the swelling has gone down significantly … though the bruising is still BAD.
Hanson was at least given a victory for her troubles … the judges had her ahead in the fight at the time of the head-butt and awarded her the eighth win of her pro career.
Awesome to come out a winner — but something tells us she’d prefer the more traditional route next time!!
