In the end, it was Dubois who suffered the first loss of his pro boxing career. Dubois simply took too much damage to his left eye courtesy of Joyce’s jab. In the 10th round, Dubois took a knee and didn’t beat the 10-count.

“Thank you to everyone who has sent messages of support over the weekend. All my respect to Joe Joyce, he boxed well and won fair and square. I thought I was winning the fight. I tried to fight through the injury but I couldn’t in the end. I’m out of the hospital and will wait now for the fracture to heal.
I’ll be back to prove my doubters wrong and my fans right.”
Dubois’ record has fallen to 15-1. He was coming off a second-round TKO finish over Ricardo Snijders. The 23-year-old will need to go back to the drawing board following his first pro defeat.
Joyce improves his record to 12-0. The 35-year-old is hoping to get a major championship opportunity next.
