'Fight needs to be stopped'
The co-main event has already left fans up in arms after the opening round.
Lawrence Okolie knocked down Nikodem Jezewski in the early going with a body shot before Jezeweski was left looking like a newborn foal on wobbly legs in the middle of the round.
A second knockdown left one commentator calling for the fight to be ended but Jezeweski got back to his feet and made the bell.
"You can not continue this fight. He could be badly hurt," one DAZN commentator proclaimed.
This fight needs to be stopped #JoshuaPulev
This Okolie fight is an absolute embarrassment. Opponent beyond a tomato can.
Makes Dubois v Fujimoto look like Hagler v Hearns #JoshuaPulev
Lawrence Okolie hit Jezewski with a right hand and Jezewski's entire body began to convulse. Why is this fight continuing? #JoshuaPulev
Fury gets the job done
The cousin of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, Hughie has claimed a unanimous decision victory against Mariusz Wach.
Fury controlled the pace of the fight from the opening bell and never looked troubled by what Wach was putting out.
An accidental head clash in the fourth round opened up a deep cut above the left eye of Fury and caused him trouble for a few rounds.

His corner went to work at the end of every round to patch up the cut and stem the flow of blood and did an excellent job to keep the fight going. Allowing Fury to go on to claim the win.
Good performance from Hughie, overcame a nasty cut, put together some nice combinations and moved well #JoshuaPulev

Fighter's golden mid-fight question to corner
Sitting back in the corner, a fighter is normally trying to take in as much oxygen as they can and listen to what their trainer has to say.
Macaulay Mcgowan however had other things in mind when he parked himself on the stool.
As soon as he sat down he turned to his trainers and was asking for the score in the Manchester City game.
"What's the score sir? What's the score sir?" he asked repeatedly.
😅 "What's the City score?"
The priorities of @MacaulayMcgowan 🤣🤣🤣
