Started boxing training again a while ago. Yesterday I had a sparring session a threw a punch that landed badly (on the hip).

Hand began to hurt quite a bit. Boxing trainer looked at it and mentioned my knuckle got inverted/dented, which would be nothing to worry about, common boxing injury. Got some ice gel and did some other excercises.

Hand hurts like hell. Doesn't seem broken (can move fingers and hand a bit).

My question, an inverted/dented knuckle, is that indeed a common boxing injury?

For comparison, left hand and my injured right hand. The ring finger knuckle on my right hand seems totally disappeared...

About to come on here and say it looks to be broken. I did the same thing many years ago when I punched an older cousin in the gut and the bastard had on one of that big cowboy rodeo looking belt buckles. Of course I hit it square on and broke my 4th knuckle on my right hand for that one and it took a good while to heal.

Is that a martini on the table?
