    Acceptable to who? No one elses opinion on acceptability means fuck all.

    Dubios thought it was acceptable and that’s all the matters.

    I do believe he shouldn’t continue boxing, unless it’s purely for paydays.
    Fans opinion for sure matter because that’s how he gets his paycheck. If everyone just views him as a quitter that is overrated then he loses a lot of future money.

    With that said, he made his decision to quit which is up to him. My point was that long before he quit, he looked like he wanted to quit. It’s not like Brook where he was completely game but eventually quit because of his eye socket. Dubois seemed to want an out for a while.
    I kinda agree with you. My issue is people talking so much about the quit, guy couldn’t see. He did look shaken after blowing his wad in the first 3 rounds and he was scared.

    But he needs to be real with himself now about going forward.

    Viktor Faust Vykhryst fought friday night in his 5th fight and he looked like he would have beaten both of them comfortably.

    The class difference between Faust and Dubios is so vast.

    Viktor Vykhryst was very comfortable when he fought Joyce in the WSB, Had a nice little lie down
    When God said to the both of us "Which one of you wants to be Sugar Ray?" I guess I didnt raise my hand fast enough

    It's pretty evident he quit, but as said it was for the right reasons. His face was reddening after round 1 and his eye was a mess. It was a pretty solid jab that landed right on that swelling knocking it back into his face, it's easy to see how that could cause some serious damage and pain in and around the eye.

    Wouldn't write off Dubois just yet, I was pretty high on him, but I think we can bring down his hype a few levels now and see how he rebounds.

    I've never liked slapping labels of guys, among them bum, quitter and great not necessarily in that order . Truth is I've never had the pleasure of having my face shattered over a few rounds and knowing what my instinct would be in a ring with rules. In the bigger picture Dubois indeed quit, opted out, bent the knee etc. But I've come around from 'a quit is a quit' years ago to seeing some varying degrees of a fighter deciding he wants out. We've seen quits out of mere frustration, quits on the ring walk before they even entered , quits from some just there for the payday doing flop jobs brought into lose, the Golota panic type quits, and guys who take a subtle sustained hammering with obvious injury and Dubois falls there for me. Dubois proved to have little adjustments and ran pretty much one predictable gear which doesn't bode well for his future but it's not like he blames a case of the fight day shits or flying out of the ring through the ropes Superfly Kermit Cintron style . There was talk of the ref blowing it and that's valid, even the corner and ring doctor. Ultimately you have to look out for the fighter above all. A corner watches a guy breakdown up close and personal all night long and they know them better than anyone. Ref sees it every night too and that's their job. Dubois may have to shake a little stigma but he can't buy into this defining him only he can do that over a career.

    It might be a little premature to compare him with Brook when thinking about how he will cope when he comes back, it doesn't sound like it was a serious as Brooks, DDD doesn't need surgery on it for one, sure he will have a lot of improving to do on his return but the injury may be as big of a factor as people are thinking
