A "freak accident" has forced Belfast boxer Carl Frampton to pull out of his scheduled bout against Emmanuel Dominguez.
The Northern Irishman said a "large ornament" had fallen on his left hand in a hotel lobby, fracturing his fifth metacarpal.
He added: "I'm absolutely devastated."
The 32-year-old had been due to fight Mexico's Dominguez in Philadelphia on Saturday ahead of a shot at the featherweight title.
Frampton tweeted a video earlier in the day showing him running on a treadmill during what he called his "last hard session".
He said: "It's fight week now, training done, time to focus on the fight!"
The injury marked another setback in Frampton's quest to again be a world champion.
He had considered retirement following December's shock defeat by Josh Warrington before then preparing to fight earlier this summer.
But the adjournment of his court case with former manager Barry McGuigan ensured a delay.
The boxer, who has been the world champion at featherweight and super-batmanweight levels, signed a multi-fight deal with influential US promoters Top Rank in March.

Josh Warrington clung on to his IBF featherweight title after a controversial split decision win over Kid Galahad in Leeds.
The home favourite gained the verdict by 116-112 and 116-113 on two of the judges' scorecards with Howard Foster favouring the challenger by 115-113.
Galahad had largely frustrated Warrington through much of the contest and had appeared to land the cleaner if less powerful work.
But ultimately Warrington's sheer will to win somehow saw him through, albeit in a fashion far removed from his previous epic triumphs over Lee Selby and Carl Frampton.
So comfortable was Fury that he remained on his feet instead of sitting on his stool at the end of the first round.Read the full story ›
