I now have a tripod fracture of my eye socket and cheek running under my temple. It's worrying me that I won't be able to box or compete in the future as I've read it could be dangerous and my cheek could be weaker with the plate in. Doesn't make sense as I know Thai boxers toughen their bones with that substance harder than stone but someone believes i could get the metal pushed into my head. Hope there's a way around it otherwise il have to stick to krav maga over boxing
