FRANK WARREN has slammed fellow promoter Eddie Hearn after suggesting Daniel Dubois quit against Joe Joyce.

Despite heading into heavyweight showdown as favourite, ‘The Juggernaut’ stopped his opponent in the tenth round with Dubois’ left eye swollen shut.

Those watching were left stunned when he dropped to one knee to suffer the first defeat of his career.

Hearn criticised both Dubois and his promoter Warren, claiming he was rushed into the scrap.

The Matchroom promoter initially said on Instagram: “I think it was about the fourth or fifth round I thought, ‘He don’t fancy this’. He went to the corner and the corner team were saying things like, ‘Come on! This is the fight game!’

“I thought, ‘Calm down, it’s only the fourth round.’ And I think they just knew he was mentally weak. I’m not sure?

“I think you have to look at what the fighters are saying. Every fighter says Dubois quit. So I guess, in boxing terms, yes.

“I think it will be very difficult to come back from that but, at the end of the day, I think they rushed him. I thought they matched Dubois really poorly coming through.”

But Warren labelled Hearn’s comments as ‘disgusting’ and speaking to iFL TV, fired back: “I find it quite disgusting that he’s saying these sort of things, but he can’t help himself as he’s always got something to say.

“Nobody has got to give Eddie Hearn a copy of anything it will be sent to the board. He is seeing a specialist because he has a fractured eye socket.

“What happens if he carried on and ended up like Anthony Ogogo? You know what? I don’t care what he has to say.

“He came out and said at the start and said categorically that Daniel Dubois would beat Joe Joyce, so he’s trying to get on the bandwagon.”

Ogogo was forced to retire from the ring in 2017 after fight Craig Cunningham for the WBC middleweight title.

He fractured his eye socket and ended up losing the vision in his left eye.

Hearn’s comments were also echoed by Carl Frampton and Dillian Whyte who claimed Dubois quit against Joyce.
