Champion did not fake injury
Bernard Hopkins suffered a separated shoulder joint in his fight against Chad Dawson on Saturday.
Dawson took the title from 46-year-old Hopkins with a controversial technical knockout in the bizarre ending of the WBC light-heavyweight title bout in Los Angeles.
It was the first time in a 23-year career that Hopkins was beaten inside the distance.
Hopkins had jumped on Dawson's back during a clinch and the challenger used his shoulder to throw Hopkins backwards on to the canvas. He landed awkwardly on his shoulder.
"Bernard Hopkins has been released from the California Hospital Medical Centre in Los Angeles after being X-rayed and examined by doctor Sam Thurber," the fight publicists said on in statement on Sunday.
Dr Thurber diagnosed Hopkins with "a separation of the acromioclavicular (A-C) joint, which connects the collar bone and shoulder blade," the statement said.
Hopkins had argued after the bout that Dawson should have been penalised for a foul, rather than awarded a technical knockout.
Dawson accused Hopkins of faking an injury.
