In brief: Boxers fracture
A true boxers fracture refers to an index finger knuckle region fracture.
Commonly a fracture of the little finges is also called a boxers fracture. It should be referred to as a street fighters fracture owing to the poor technique of punching. In either case an unhealed fracture should be protected. Further injury may damage the bone and affect hand function leading to the need for surgery.
