Shane McGuigan shows off gruesome split lip which requires stitches after being punched in face by Daniel Dubois

BOXING trainer Shane McGuigan was left with five stitches in his lip after accidently being punched in the face… by his own fighter.

The renowned British coach showed off the injury on Instagram, revealing his gruesome gash.

He posted: “Happy Halloween.”

McGuigan, son to Irish legend Barry, later followed up to confirm stitches were needed.

He wrote: “5 stitches later. 2 inside & 3 outside I’m patched up… Thanks @dynamite_daniel_dubois.”

McGuigan, who also trains hard-hitting cruiserweight Lawrence Okolie, has been with Dubois, 25, since May 2021.

The heavyweight in April knocked out Trevor Bryan, 33, to win the WBA’s secondary “Regular” title.

It puts him in line for a crack at Oleksandr Usyk’s full title down the line.

For now, Dubois returns on December 3 defending his title against Kevin Lerena, 30.

The bout comes on the undercard of Tyson Fury’s trilogy bout with Derek Chisora, 38.

Dubois’ promoter Frank Warren is ready to offer the Brit and ex-opponent Joe Joyce, 37, to Anthony Joshua, 33, in the future.


He told Sky Sports: “Now I’m going to be able to start throwing Daniel Dubois at him and Joe.

“If he don’t fight one of them I think they’ll find it hard to sell anything and he can’t say, ‘Why should I do that?’.

“I’ll tell you why, he’ll become a mandatory.”
