Frank Warren (Daniel Dubois’s promoter) has spoken to the Daily Star about his unbeaten heavyweight and his upcoming fight with Joe Joyce:
“Taking him all the way to the top will be such a fantastic success story. I’ve had many champions over the years who we have built up into worldwide superstars. Dubois has got it all to follow in their footsteps for sure and I’ve never met someone so dedicated to fulfilling their potential. The Londoner came on to my radar before anyone else had really heard of him and we decided to take him as a teenager. We knew we were getting a special talent but the worth ethic from him is second to none.
“While many people’s lives have been changed by lockdown, it won’t have made much difference to Dubois. He won’t have been allowed in a gym for a few months but he will have spent every waking hour either training or thinking about boxing. Some have ability but lack the work ethic, while others lack talent but make up for it by giving their all but Dubois has both the skills and the willingness to work harder than anyone.”
“The winner of that fight will surely be a mandatory for a world title next year. The hope is that Tyson Fury faces Anthony Joshua twice in 2021 for all the belts in the biggest fight in British boxing. But the winner of Dubois against Joyce will be front of the queue for the fighter who comes out on top of the undisputed clash.”
