Joe Joyce’s mother Marve Opara took a huge dig at Daniel Dubois after Joyce beat the 23-year-old fighter. This was a heavyweight clash which had a lot of talk in the build-up. Dubois made some questionable comments about ‘The Juggernaut’s’ mother. Before the two settled things in the ring, Joyce promised to teach Dubois a lesson in the ring.

In the first press conference, Dubois made a comment about Joyce’s mother being blind; he said she will not have to worry because she won’t see her son on the canvas. Joyce, who has more experience, chose to reply in the ring. And speaking to iFL TV on YouTube after the fight, Opara said, “Hopefully he’s learned his lesson now, and he has to respect his elders now.

She took a big swipe at him for his comments when she said, “And now [that] he’s got his eye all bust-up, now you know what it’s like not to see. So anyway, message to you Daniel Dubois…. ‘Now you was flattened’. No, you quit.”

Joyce peppered Dubois with powerful jabs to the left eye. By the tenth round, the ‘Dynamite’s’ eye was swollen to the extent that he could not see. This eventually made him take a knee till the count-out.

Yea, sorry now.” She also went to wish him a speedy recovery and said, “Anyway, get well soon, Daniel. Get well soon.”

Dubois was the favorite going into this fight. However, Joe Joyce showed his experience and did not let the trash talk get to him; He executed his game-plan and will fight for the title next. ‘The Dynamite’ on the other hand will have to recover from that nasty injury and get back to the drawing board.
