Promoter Eddie hearn believes that one of the reasons the boxing world is making fun of the defeat of Billy Joe Saunders, it was because of the comments that the Englishman made about Daniel Dubois in his defeat before Joy joyce last november.
That time, Dubois knelt in the 10th round after being hit by a powerful jab from Joyce which caused the fracture of the orbital bone of the left eye. After that, Daniel was teased and pointed out, as he did Saunders, who didn’t like the way he got down on his knees to get out of the fight.
“If they broke the orbital bones of my two eyes, if they broke my jaw, if they knocked out my teeth, if they burst my nose, if they shaken my brain, I would not give up until I was knocked out or worse,” he said. Saunders on that occasion.
According Hearn, fans took revenge on the Brit by letting him know that he is a hypocrite for pulling out of his fight with Canelo after he suffered a right eye injury in the eighth round.
“I think it was because of the comments (of Saunders) on Dubois, I suppose that until something like this happens to you you don’t know how you are going to react ”, he said. Hearn to DAZN Boxing Show. “When you speak and say those things, the comments are reproduced and, sometimes…. you’re going to get a lot of sticks back ”.
