Dyah Davis suffered broken jaw in loss to James DeGale

By James Slater

A disappointed Dyah Davis has revealed how he suffered a broken jaw in last night’s points loss to Britain’s James DeGale. Writing, and posting a photo of his hospital x-ray, on his Facebook page, Davis wrote how he suffered the debilitating injury in the 2nd-round.

“Thanks everyone for your diehard support, I fought with all my heart,” Davis wrote. “I suffered a broken jaw in the 2nd-round which had a major effect on the rest of my performance. I knew straight away it was broken but I did what any other warrior would so – Fight! I’ll go back to the drawing board and figure out what else I’d like to do with my career.”

Davis, the son of 1976 Olympic gold medal winner Howard Davis, lost by three scores of 118-110 and is now 22-4-1(10). DeGale, who is closing in on a world title shot, improved to 17-1(11). It’s likely DeGale was unaware of the injury he had inflicted on Davis.
