There has been quite a fall-out from last weekend's fight between Joe Joyce and Daniel Dubois - and I found myself in the middle of it.
After nine close rounds, Dubois went down on one knee having taken a jab to his eye, which was badly swollen to the point where he couldn't see out of it. In that moment when I was asked for my opinion on BT Sport, I said he quit. Others agreed, but I have taken a lot of stick since then.
Over the past few days it has been explained that he suffered a fractured eye socket and was in a great deal of pain from very early on in the fight. Yet despite that he was very much in the fight, and on my card he was a round up, even though the body language going into the 10th round suggested Joyce was the man who would go on to win.
Many have come out and defended Dubois and taken offence at my comment, but I stand by my opinion that in that moment he quit. It's not a criticism, I didn't call him a coward. Anybody who steps through the ropes is not a coward. But in that 10th round he chose not to go on.
For whatever reason, Dubois made a choice to go down from that jab and watch the referee count to 10. I can't think of another way to put it, to describe that action, other than to say he quit.
I really hope that he makes a full recovery and comes back to have a great career, and I would strongly argue that he should not have been the one to make that decision - his corner should have pulled him out. They must have known how bad he felt and that he couldn't see, so if they felt he was in distress then they should have called it off.
It was also significant to me the difference in the corners in regard to the advice that was being given. Steve Broughton in the Joyce corner, who I worked with during the earlier part of my career, was giving sound, calm advice, and Joyce was going out to try and implement it, but the Dubois corner felt the need to give all this motivational stuff from early on - the kind of things you hear when a fighter is going into rounds 11 and 12.
Dubois, from early on, was being regularly caught with the jab and yet I never heard any instruction to move his head more, to use his feet better. It just seemed there was panic. Before the fight I thought Dubois would win, but I feel that the bouts Joyce had leading up to this one had prepared him in a better way to handle the occasion.
Joyce had fought Bryant Jennings, Bermaine Stiverne and Alexander Ustinov, so he was ready for a big night. In his first 12 fights he fought better opposition than not only Dubois but also Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, and it paid off. It seemed Dubois froze a little and then the eye damage came early on, and by the seventh round it looked closed.
I want to make it very clear: I am not criticising Dubois, I am simply trying to analyse what happened in the fight and why it happened. His decision not to go on was his choice.
My mate Stevie Ward also fought with a broken eye socket and won against Roland Paredes in Belfast two years ago. Paredes eventually got disqualified for use of the head. But others in the past have decided not to go on, like Roberto Duran when he was being humiliated by the boxing of Sugar Ray Leonard.
Last year, AJ quit in his first fight with Andy Ruiz. He chose not to go on for whatever reason. Recently retired heavyweight Dave Allen said that not everybody fights like Arturo Gatti. Ohara Davies quit against Josh Taylor, but then you have someone like Oscar Valdez who fought and won against Scott Quigg with a broken jaw. Quigg also fought against me for six rounds with a broken jaw.
The one disappointing aspect is that the performance of Joyce has been overlooked. He boxed a very clever fight and has now pushed himself into the mix for a very big bout. He could end up fighting Oleksandr Usyk for the WBO title if AJ was to vacate. We will know a lot more after AJ's fight with Kubrat Pulev.
Joyce has a great engine and is as tough as they come, so he brings another exciting dimension to the heavyweight picture, and hopefully Dubois will return stronger than ever to be in that mix as well.
Anthony Joshua is a red-hot favourite to retain his world heavyweight titles this Saturday night against Kubrat Pulev, and rightly so.
Pulev is a good fighter and has only lost once, to Wladimir Klitschko, so he is a good challenger, but I just feel that AJ will be too fresh and powerful. I would expect him to stop Pulev in good style.
Everyone hopes that a win for AJ will open the door a lot wider to a fight with Tyson Fury in 2021. It has been said that a two-fight deal has been verbally agreed and that would be very special for next year.
The fight with Pulev has taken some criticism for being on pay-per-view on Sky, but with a very small crowd of only 1,000 people due to the pandemic, the only way to pay the guys is to charge the viewer. I know boxing is mainly a working class sport, and this is a tough time, but I can't see how the fight could happen without being on Sky Box Office.
The world is in a crazy state at the moment and it seems that boxing is going the same way.
The Mike Tyson and Roy Jones show drew 1.5m pay-per-view buys in the States, though some of those are probably from fans of the YouTuber Jake Paul. Now there is a deal in place for Evander Holyfield to face Glenn McCrory before taking on Tyson for a third time.
Just as shocking as that has been the talk from Oscar de la Hoya that he wants to come back and fight Gennady Golovkin, one of the hardest punchers the sport has ever seen. He even says it will be "easy".
You wonder where this will all end - are they putting something in our water?
James Tennyson sent out a clear warning to future opponents with the way he got rid of Josh O'Reilly in their world title eliminator at Wembley Arena on Friday night.
Not only did Tennyson show his devastating power, but he was also very accurate with his punching.
The fight may have lasted less than a round but Tennyson showed again that anyone who carries that kind of power will be a danger in any fight.
I would like to see him fight Lee Selby or Jorge Linares next. Selby has been a world champion and so has Linares who, even though he is past his best, is still able to offer a good test.
If Martin Murray decides to call time on his career, he will be able to look back with great pride.
Martin lost clearly to Billy Joe Saunders in their WBO World super-middleweight title on Friday night but showed immense heart to go the distance.
He will always be remembered as an uncrowned world champion, having lost controversially to Sergio Martinez in Argentina and Felix Sturm in Germany. Most felt he won both battles.
Billy Joe will be hoping to move forward to a big fight with either Callum Smith or Canelo Alvarez in 2021. He looks like he would still be a force at middleweight, but the massive fights are at super-middle, so that's why he'll stay there.
