, Daniel Dubois out for five months with cracked eye socket and bleed on retina with Brit narrowly escaping being BLINDED

DANIEL DUBOIS is set to be out of action for at least five months following his defeat to Joe Joyce.

The 23-year-old suffered a cracked eye socket and a bleed on the retina before he was rushed to hospital.

Daniel Dubois has a record of 15-1 following his defeat to Joe Joyce

Dubois could not continue after Joyce landed a heavy jab on his eye in the 10th round.

Dillian Whyte labelled the heavyweight a ‘coward’ for ‘quitting’ during the bout.

But doctors have now claimed that Dubois could have went blind if he had of fought on.

He could still need to have an operation and a titanium plate put in to aid his recovery.

The injury was too swollen on Monday for the medical staff at the surgery to make a decision.

Dubois will have to return to a specialist once the swelling has gone down for further checks.

Top surgeon Ricardo Mohammed-Ali insisted Dubois was right to stop as his eye could have dropped into his sinus.

But Chris Eubank Jr claimed he was ‘disgusted’ by the 23-year-old’s decision to stop the fight.

But Olympic middleweight bronze medallist Anthony Ogogo, who was blinded in one eye after doing six rounds with a busted eye socket in 2016, leapt to Dubois’ defence.

Ogogo, 32, said: “I’d hate to see your dreams end like mine did.”

His promoter Frank Warren said: “The last punch he took caught a nerve and it shot through him.”
