Eddie Hearn has confirmed his client, Anthony Joshua has been taken to hospital for treatment on an eye injury suffered in his title defeat to Oleksandr Usyk on Saturday night, September 25 in London.

Joshua lost to the undefeated Ukrainian Usyk after a scintillating display.

Usyk who is a southpaw fighter, landed headshots throughout the contest with his shots causing Joshua's right eye to swell after the 10th round.

By the end of the 12th round, Joshua was barely standing and had to be saved by the time bell.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn (pictured below) said 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.

‘Sometimes you have to use your attributes.

‘[Joshua] 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.’

Joshua now has 30 days to activate a rematch clause which will most likely take place in Usyk's home.
