    DUBOIS TAKEN TO HOSPITAL

    Daniel Dubois has been taken to hospital. He'll undergo standard neurological tests before moving on to see an eye specialist at Moorfields.

    Suspected broken orbital bone and nerve damage for Dubois, who took a beating tonight.

    SCORECARDS

    Somehow… one judge had Dubois up by EIGHT on one scorecard. Another had DDD up by two.

    And the other had Joyce winning by three.

    Controversial, to say the least.

  • Matt Penn

    QUITTER?

    Carl Frampton and David Haye think Daniel Dubois quit tonight. What about you?

  • Matt Penn

    JOYCE CALLS OUT USYK!

    Joe Joyce immediately got on the mix to call out Oleksandr Usyk, who is mandatory for the WBO heavyweight title mandatory challenger.

    AJ or Usyk for Joyce next year?

    CELEBRATION TIME

    What a celebration from Joyce!

    DUBOIS AND JOYCE SPEAK

    “I've been hit hard, but the position on the eye… I'm tough, I'll come again,” says Dubois.

    “He rode the punches well, I was a bit trigger-happy, I need to be smarter and place my shots a bit better.

    “I took some big shots, respect to Daniel, he's got power, he's hungry and young and he'll come again,” Joyce says.

    “I felt his power and I was happy to take it… but I preferred to not take it.

    “I started looking at the eye and it was selling up, I was moving away from his right hand, trying not to get backed up.”

    WINNER!

    What a performance from the Juggernaut.

    JOYCE BEATS DUBOIS!

    That was an utterly sensational performance from Joe Joyce.

    He jabbed, jabbed and jabbed some more until Dubois had enough. Cracking stuff.

    JOYCE BEATS DUBOIS

    Round 10

    Dubois' left eye is completely closed and he goes down off a jab and decides to stay down!

    He's has enough! He clearly couldn't see and Joyce has picked up an absolutely huge win!

    WOW!

    Round 9

    Good round for Joyce but DDD with the more eye-catching moments throughout this fight so far.

    It really is up about how the judges will be interpreting the action. Joyce stabbing the jab over and over, turning Dubois' left eye blue, or the Peacock fighter's big bursts of energy.

    Joyce still bopping around, looking like he could do this all day. Dubois looks a little more laboured, but you get the sense a big shot can come from nowhere.

    Great fight!

    Round 8

    Dubois told by his trainer Martin Bowers: “You've worked too hard for this!” So DDD gets off his seat and goes to war again.

    But his eye is really looking pretty messed up… and Joyce continues to jab at it. Short right hand from Joyce gets through this time.

    DDD still in there, probing and coming forward, however, before the referee tells him off for a low blow.

    Joyce continuing to plug away before DDD attempts a huge right hand and just misses.

    Round 7

    Dubois with a huge start to round seven! Hammering down punches on Joyce, who stands there and takes it all! Thrilling stuff.

    Joyce still looking really assured of himself – he doesn't fancy crumbling under any of Dubois' shots.

    DDD's eye is pretty much shut at this point. Joyce will surely look to target that as the fight goes on.

    Great combo from Joyce to end the seventh. Joyce is winning this fight for me. And he's fit as a fiddle.

    DUBOIS VS JOYCE

    Round 6

    Dubois' left eye is beginning to close, and close quick. Joyce continuing to push his big left jab right into that eye, too.

    Dubois does come back with a big right hand, though. But Joyce takes it again!

    Absolutely brilliant fight so far here at the Church House Westminster.

    Joyce boxing really well at range, it's getting harder for Dubois to assert himself. But he lands another nice right hand toward the end of the round!

    Round 5

    That was a big round four from Joyce but Dubois comes forward again in the fifth with a nice right hand.

    He finds his range here and there Dubois, while Joyce has been so consistent with his jab. There's making all over the face of Dubois.

    But DDD does land a nice jab of his own to score himself. Dubois then pops in a nice one-two but Joyce takes it again.

    Really great fight so far – it's on a knife-edge and could still go either way.

    Round 4

    Dubois gets on his jab again to begin the round but it's much less of the frantic pace he set in the previous two rounds.

    Joyce coming forward and getting himself in there more than Dubois would like.

    Dubois lands a body shot but Joyce takes it and continues to come forward.

    Juggernaut utilising his jab again in the fourth, plenty of accuracy from the Putney man. Close round again. 2-2 or 3-1 Joyce?

    Round 3

    Dubois opens up with another nice jab and gets on it straight away with power shots!

    He's been fantastic since the end of the first round but he needs to be careful he doesn't tire at this rate, because Joyce can go on like this all night.

    Excellent fight thus far. Joyce continues with his jab and Dubois' nose begins to redden.

    Dubois is looking a tad tired as the round comes to an end. He felt the pace of that one. More excitement from both fighters there, though.

    Round 2

    Dubois comes out swinging in the second round! Good start to the second for the British champion after losing the first.

    He looks like he's shaken off a few nerves and he's responded well to his corner's instructions.

    Joyce weathers the storm, though, and gets back to his boxing. Dubois lands a nice jab and then a strong right but Joyce hangs in there again!

    Great second round!

    DUBOIS VS JOYCE

    Round 1

    Joyce coming forward to kick things off but Dubois working nicely with the early job before landing a right hand.

    Interesting opening minute to the round as both fighters take a look of what's in front of them.

    Joyce enjoying himself on the front foot but he has to be careful because Dubois could land at any moment.

    Juggernaut doing okay in those early stages, though. 1-0 Juggernaut.
