A broken metacarpal will keep Carl Frampton from taking on Emmanuel Dominguez in a 10-round featherweight fight on Saturday. Frampton had to pull out of the fight after a concrete pillar fell on his hand.
The 32-year-old Frampton called it a “freak accident,” and said he was “extremely disappointed” to miss the fight.
According to Frampton, a large concrete pillar at a hotel fell on his hand while he was sitting at a table. He broke his fifth metacarpal.
While that sounds unusual, Frampton provided video evidence of the scene after the incident. He walked his Twitter followers through what happened, saying someone walked by a large concrete ornament and knocked it over. The structure landed on a marble table where Frampton was resting his hand. The table sustained damage as well.
Frampton-Dominguez was expected to be the main event at Top Rank Boxing in Philadelphia on Saturday. The event will still take place, but with a new main event.
