Halloween got started early Friday night during the Tureano Johnson-Jaime Munguia  Friday night during the 6th round of their WBO’s Inter-Continental Middleweight title fight at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California. The referee stepped in during the 6th round of the fight as Johnson’s face turned into a scary Halloween mask as his lip split open and turned into a bloody mess.

It appears an uppercut from Munguia is the one that split the lip. Slow-motion replay seems to show part of Johnson’s lip flying across the ring. It was a tough ending for Johnson who has now lost two of his last four (1-2-1). Munguia is now 36-0 with 29 knockouts.

“I want any of the 160-pound champs,” Munguia said after the fight. “Any (of them) would be great for me.” That’s exactly how you like to see an undefeated champ act after applying a Halloween mask to an opponent’s face. Who’s next? Who wants a split lip for Halloween? 

As for Johnson, throw on a COVID mask and nobody will notice the stitches it took to snap his lip back into place. Rough night. Shake it off.
