CARL FRAMPTON lambasted Daniel Dubois’ trainer for allowing him to continue fighting Kevin Lerena while he was “clearly concussed”.
Dubois retained the WBA regular title against Lerena at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the undercard of Tyson Fury vs Derek Chisora III.
DDD suffered a hellacious first round that saw him getting knocked down three times by the South African.
The British heavyweight then looked dazed as he was on his knees and also appeared to be suffering a problem with his ankle.
Frampton slammed the 25-year-old’s trainer Shane McGuigan for allowing him to fight on.
The former two-weight world champion insists Dubois was “concussed” and argued his corner didn’t look after his “best interests”.
Frampton said: “Dubois said, ‘What happened?’ Clearly concussed, didn’t know what was going on…
“For me that looked like a corner who didn’t have the fighter’s best interests at heart.”
Dubois managed to turn things around with an incredible comeback to beat Lerena in the third round.
The Londoner had the KO Kid on the ropes and the referee halted the fight after a series of head shots.
Fans took to social media bewildered by the ref’s decision to end the first round 12 seconds earlier.
Some even swarmed Twitter to argue that the fight between the two heavyweight was rigged.
