Boxers Fracture

Did you see the Mike Tyson vs. Ray Jones Jr.'s Exhibition Boxing Bout? And, did you hear now that Tyson and Evander Holyfield have signed the contract to be the next big exhibition match? https://www.espn.com/boxing/story/_/id/30430369/evander-holyfield-mike-tyson-sign-contract-get-ring?fbclid=IwAR3jpX5YyqdrPpzDMvEvwHn1FPlV2qh2647FYGK-MfEDtRyj4Btenm4moTY
 
Exhbiition or not, boxing inflicts great injury. A boxer's fracture is a most common one for fighters. A boxer's fracture is when a fighter breaks a bone at the base of the finger, near the knuckle or neck of the bone. That bone is known as a metacarpal. It usually happens to the small (pinky) finger or the ring finger.
 
But just not in boxing, punch the wall and you can find yourself with a boxer's fracture. We don't recommend it, but if this warning comes to late, call The Precision Hand Surgery Center at Ortho El Paso for treatment. https://www.orthoep.com/hand-surgery-center
