Armie Hammer nursing black eye after boxing bout

Actor Armie Hammer has been left with a black eye after stepping into the boxing ring for a sparring session with a former professional footballer.

The Social Network star challenged former San Diego Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman to a bout on Wednesday (19Nov14) at the new Los Angeles gym Unbreakable Performance, but the practise session ended with Hammer nursing a real shiner.


However, the actor, who has been undergoing boxing training for several months, doesn't appear to be too upset by the injury - he is pictured smiling as he shows off his swollen face in a photo obtained by TMZ.com.


Ironically, Merriman's nickname on the field was Lights Out.
