Euro News: Daniel Dubois' Injury, Pablo Sanchez, More

Promoter Frank Warren confirmed that British heavyweight Daniel Dubois suffered a fractured orbital bone and nerve damage around his left eye during his stoppage loss to  Olympic silver medal winner Joe Joyce on Saturday night.

The fight was very even, but Dubois' left eye began to close up as the fight played out - the result of Joyce's stiff jabs.

During the tenth round, Dubois was hit directly on the left eye and voluntarily took a knee. He allowed himself to be counted out by the referee.

The 23-year-old was ahead on two of the three official scorecards when the fight was stopped. He was taken to a local hospital in the aftermath.

"Daniel Dubois will be back. He is still only 23 and has a huge and successful career ahead of him. He took a risk, and this time it didn’t come off. Full credit for fighting his heart out as long as he did with a fractured orbital bone and nerve damage around his eye," Warren stated.


Cuban prospect Pablo Sanchez has signed with Rocky Boxing Group in Poland and will make his professional debut on December 11 in Wielki Klincz. Sanchez won the Cuban junior championship twice and weighs in just above the cruiserweight limit.

Headlining the show is cruiser Nikodem Jezewski (19-0-1) who takes on German-based Ukrainan Roman Golovashchenko (20-5).

I really hope that he doesn’t meet the same fate as Kell Brook. Once an eye gets injured like that, your career is at risk.

Dubois should obviously rest up, stay off social media for awhile, fire the chef, fire the S&C coach and fire the head coach! He should’ve watched what Joyce was doing when Dubois would jab with Joe, no catch an release…
