Daniel Dubois has been taken to hospital on the back of the horrific eye injury suffered at the hands of Joe Joyce.
The Brit will have to be treated by doctors after he was forced to take a knee and end the heavyweight contest on Saturday night.
He will undergo a scan at the hospital, which will check whether any long-term serious damage has been done to his eye.
Dubois was counted out in the tenth round after his left-eye swelled and he took a knee following a sickening jab from Joyce.
Dubois was left with no vision from the eye and after taking a knee in pain, he was unable to continue.
As a result, Joyce upset the odds to become the British, Commonwealth and European titles.
In taking a knee, Dubois was on the end of criticism from pundits David Haye and Carl Frampton.
But his injuries are so severe that he needed hospital treatment.
"I as very unhappy with the way that he took a knee, after taking a shot to the eye," Haye said on BT Sport.
"It is the hurt game. I am sure Carl is the same."
Frampton added: "I think we all like Dubois, I think he is a likable guy. But I think he quit there.
"We have to be brutally honest here, he took a knee. His eye was a mess, his eye was closed.
"But I get dragged out of the ring, I don't take a knee.
"I had Dubois a round up at the time of the stoppage, but you have to call it what it is. He quit.
"He is a young kid and he can still come back."
