Dubois vs. Joyce – November 2020

Back in November of last year, Dubois lost for the first time in his professional career against fellow British heavyweight Joe Joyce.

It was a highly-anticipated clash, involving the two undefeated British boxers, and were fighting for the chance to be crowned with five belts. The British, European, Commonwealth, WBC Silver and WBO International were all on the line, with Juggernaut Joe Joyce in the end being crowned victorious.

The fight was a close bout, with Joyce’s jab doing some brutal damage to Dubois’ face – even if you know nothing about boxing, you know that’s not good. It was an even contest up until Dubois could take no more punishment.

In the tenth round of the fight, Joyce landed a couple more harsh jabs to Dubois that connected perfectly, all consistently in the similar place – Dubois’ eye.

As a result, Dubois made the decision to take a knee and be counted out by the referee, awarding the win to Joyce.

A Very Broken Eye Socket

Some critics responded very negatively to Dubois’ decision to take a knee and be counted out, including British heavyweight Dillian Whyte calling Dynamite Dubois a ‘coward’ for ‘quitting’ – some harsh words from Dillian.

Once the storm had settled, and time had passed (and Whyte couldn’t think of anything else to say), reports were made that if Dubois had continued, there was a chance of permanent damage, and would have resulted in the end of his career with the sport.

However, after the fight, it was revealed by doctor’s that the British heavyweight had suffered a broken eye socket and bleeding on his retina – that has the potential to blind anyone.

We couldn’t find anything the critics had to say about that. Since the horrific injury, the 23-year-old has cut ties with his old trainer and is looking (with his recovered eye) to make his return between the ropes with a new trainer in Mark Tibbs.

Dubois’ Return

Boxing promoter Frank Warren has confirmed Dubois’ return, in an interview with The Lockdown. Warren said: “His manager is Martin Bowers and his brother Tony advises him and I understand they’re having a meeting with (Mark) Tibbs this week and see what happens and see where it goes.

“I’ve spoken with him a couple of times and he got the all clear last week so now he can resume training and he’ll be out some time in May”.

If this happens, and Dynamite Dubois does return to the ring, you best expect him to come back looking to set the record straight.

There is still only one loss to his name, with Joyce now looking to enter the world title scene, which can pave the way for Dubois to make his return. Also, he’s still only 23, so he has a long career ahead of him – this won’t be the last you hear of Dynamite Daniel Dubois.
