A fighter who suffered a brutal defeat on the undercard of Joseph Parker’s fight on Wednesday night has shared the sobering reality of stepping in the ring.
Campbell Somerville, 26, was beaten to a bloody pulp in his fight with Isaias Sette, 20, at Margaret Court Arena and the previously undefeated Australian had to go to hospital after the bout.
Somerville, who competed for Australia at the Commonwealth Games, sported heavy marking and bruising on his face as Sette landed haymakers throughout.
His corner eventually threw in the towel, an act that Billy Dib labelled ‘a smart move’ while Main Event commentator Ben Damon called the beatdown ‘gruesome’.
Now, a picture of Somerville in a hospital bed has been shared online, which certainly isn’t for the faint-hearted.

But Somerville will at least have the consolation of receiving wise words of advice from heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, who was in attendance to support Parker in the main event.
Footage from the locker room after the fight showed Fury consoling the beleaguered 26-year-old.
‘This is the fight game my friend,’ Fury said. ‘Sometimes in boxing, you know, you win some you lose some.
‘Even when you win you sometimes get busted up. I’ve had faces like this many a time.
‘Just come back and keep doing what you’ve got to do.’
Somerville replied: ‘Appreciate you man, you’re an idol of mine. So thank you.’
Fury said: ‘Let’s take a picture together.’
