And promoter Hearn put the image on to his Instagram page with the Preston brawler barely able to see as he takes a selfie.

Both eye sockets appear various shades of purple and blue thanks to some accurate punching from Fowler at Liverpool's M&S Bank Arena.

Hearn said: "Toughest sport in the world! Always respect the fighters!

BEST DAD EVER

"New @wbaboxingofficial international champ @scottfitz91 after his war on Saturday."

Fitzgerald took home the WBA international super welterweight title after his win.

And he posted a heartfelt message to his on-off girlfriend Jaz Jaz, who is also the father of his child.

He said: "Wouldn't of [sic] got here without this Angel not a chance!

"Heard a few horrible rumours going around that I've left my ex alone to bring up our child but that isn't true and I want to help and support as much as possible, I'm a good person, I'll be the best dad ever #promise."

Fitzgerald looks set to face Ted Cheeseman next after the BBBC ordered the Londoner to defend his British title against him in July.
