Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn disclosed his fighter may have suffered a broken eye socket.

‘When he lost in New York everyone started analysing the dressing room, the ring walk,’ Hearn said.

‘He was fine, he was maybe a little too relaxed on the ring walk, he was shaking everyone’s hand, he was hugging a few people that is just AJ but I feel it was the wrong type of performance.

‘He never really got going, he will go to hospital now, I don’t know if he has broken his eye socket, it doesn’t look great.’
