Boxer's ear nearly severed in horrific injury (GRAPHIC IMAGES)

GRAPHIC VIDEO: Brit boxer Stephen Smith has half his ear TORN OFF during bout

But his hopes were shattered in the ninth round after an accidental clash of heads inflicted a stomach-churning injury on his ear.

With the judges scoring the bout 89-82, 88-83, 88-83, Vargas was given the unanimous decision victory as Smith was left to stitch his sickening wounds.

Gory images show the 32-year-old's ear nearly split in half from the top, hanging sickeningly from the side of his head.

"Thanks very much for all your supportive messages last night, read them all and they mean a lot", the 32-year-old wrote on Twitter.
