The Polish challenger’s forehead began to swell in the third round and by the fourth the lump had swollen even more.

But the warriors continued on until the final bell in a displays of grit, skill and pure guts.

Both stars bodies showed the fierceness of the clash post-fight – but it was Jedrzejczyk grotesquely swollen head that had everyone talking.

Jedrzejczyk caused Zhang all sorts of problems with her movement and in the third she opened up a bit on Zhang as she switched to southpaw, landing a number of clean lefts.

But Zhang showed her metal over the final two as her punches began to take their toll as she targeted the challenger’s head, staggering her on a few occasions.

However, Jedrzejczyk refused to go down easily and gathered herself numerous times to take it to the score cards.

And it would be Zhang who retained by the narrowest of margins as she won the split decision.

Two judges had it – for Zhang, while the third had it – for Jedrzejczyk.
