Daniel Dubois has vowed to return to the ring and prove he is no quitter.

The 23-year-old heavyweight lost his British title to Joe Joyce in November, dropping to his knee after taking a shot in the eye in the 10th round.

"I'm just waiting to get the doctor's all-clear report back, then I'll know where I'm at and whether I can move forward or not," Dubois told The Lowdown.

"The eye has come down and there's no vision problems. They'll tell me whether I can get back to training and when I can start sparring again.

"Once everything is sorted out I'll be ready to go. I want to get back in the gym again, see what level I'm at and start afresh.

"When I come back I want see those same people and get in the ring with them, to show them how much of a quitter I am. I want to set things right."

Dubois will no longer be trained by Martin Bowers having instead linked up with Mark and Jimmy Tibbs.
