Heavyweight powerhouse Daniel Dubois insists he’s able to roll with the punches when it involves his subsequent career step and would take a world Title battle behind closed doorways if he needed to.
23-12 months-historic ‘Dynamite’ has seen first-hand the havoc Coronavirus restrictions can wreak on the wearing time table, together with his upcoming bout with Joe Joyce having been pushed returned thrice this 12 months.
Unfazed, Dubois thoroughly intends to continue his speedy ascent throughout the ranks of boxing’s glamour division and would take whatever thing shot got here his way, inspite of the way it came to him.
Of getting a global Title shot behind-closed-doors he observed: “If the condition doesn’t enrich and it doesn’t seem to be likely there’ll be crowds there I’d really take it. After this fight, if that’s the subsequent alternative then we’ll in fact take it.”
Dubois (15-0, 14KO’s) is at the moment ranked #2 with the WBO and, if information superhighway whispers are to be believed, may well be in-line to face #1 ranked Ukranian Oleksandr Usyk for the title may still Britain’s Anthony Joshua vacate the title in the hunt for a superfight with ‘The Gypsy King’ Tyson Fury.
questioned through host Dev Sahni about his willingness to tackle a fight in opposition t Usyk at such an early stage of his profession, Dubois was certain in his response: “I’d in fact take that on.
“It’s an extra big challenge and an extra huge exciting combat. He’s a gifted boxer with a very good boxing mind and good all round stream.”
Former Cruiserweight kingpin Usyk would definitely enter this kind of combat as the bookies widely used, because of his wealth of experience, however ‘Dynamite’ believes he has the attributes to conquer the odds.
requested what he has that could see him claim victory over Usyk, he observed: “My athleticism, my speed, my adolescence and my vigour. All that put together.”
able to take on any problem, Dubois also insists that may still Joshua no longer vacate the title then he’d happily take half in a ‘fight of england’ affair with AJ for the Gold.
When puzzled on what kind of fighter would prove to be Olympic Gold medallist Joshua’s undoing, Dubois stated someone who was “young and hungry”.
So, did the formidable Greenwich prospect have any person in mind?
“Yeah” he laughed, “me subsequent!”
earlier than any World Title possibility though, there’s a large obstacle in his way by means of the identify of Joe Joyce.
35-year-old Joyce boasts an undefeated list of his own, with eleven wins to his credit, and is backed by many within boxing to convey a primary defeat his younger foe.
Dubois however is convinced that he has the solutions to any questions posed by way of ‘The Juggernaut’.
“some thing he does I’ve obtained an answer for it. If he tries to circulation in and fight me that’ll be more suitable for me, that’s what I need, but when he tries to box i can try this too. I’m not concerned about what he’ll are attempting and do.”
With one more behind-closed-doors bout ahead of him, possibly not for the remaining time, confident Dubois is aware of exactly what americans can are expecting come November twenty eighth when he faces off in opposition t Joyce.
“A knockout. A devastating finish.”
