Joshua tweeted a obstinate message via his official Twitter account.
He wrote: “Keep positive
even if the world’s crumbling in front of you!
“London I love you & thank you each and every time!”
Hearn has confirmed that Joshua will go to hospital and is unsure if he has suffered a fractured eye socket.
“He will go to hospital,” Hearn told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“I don’t know if he has broken his eye socket, it doesn’t look great.”
Hearn added: “He said he couldn’t see after the ninth round, obviously he was getting tagged a lot as well.
“His power looked like it had left him, the tank was empty and it was only heart which kept him on his feet in the 12th round.”
