Joyce continued to target his left eye, which had been a problem from round two.

By the end of the fight his eye was completely closed and ultimately caused Dubois to give in.

It was later revealed that Dubois was rushed to hospital for standard neurological tests, before being taken onto Moorfields – a specialist eye hospital in east London.

Despite the heavy damage, former world champion Carl Frampton was not impressed with how Dubois finished the fight,

Speaking on BT Sport, Frampton ssaid: “I think that we all like Dubois, he’s a likeable guy.

“But if it’s someone we didn’t like wed say he’s a quitter. And I think he quit there.

“I have to be brutally honest, let’s call a spade a spade, he took a knee from a shot in the eye.

“His eye was a mess, his eye was closed but I get dragged out of the ring. I wouldn’t take a knee and get pulled out.”

Joyce later called out Oleksandr Usyk in his post-fight interview, mocking the Ukrainian’s “USSSSSYYYYKKKK” shout.
