Daniel Dubois Earns Victory Over Trevor Bryan In Fourth Round

Daniel Dubois, 24, claimed the 18th win of his career by making quick work of Trevor Bryan on Saturday. The British boxer floored his opponent in the fourth round at the Don King promoted WBA heavyweight title fight at a jai alai arena, at Casino Miami.

Dubois was very quick on his feet the entire fight. After being hit with Dubois’s swift left hook, Bryan went down, landing face first. He tried to move but the count was waved off when it was clear he had no chance of getting up.

The event itself could be described as one of the strangest in recent memory. King won the purse bid to stage the fight with a surprisingly hefty offer of $3,116,001. There was also no clear TV deal, and the fight would end up being streamed through King’s website for a pay-per-view fee of $29.99.

The event was attended by a crowd of about 600 people in a venue that had been two feet under water until recently. The limescale line left by the water was still visible on the seats, and two men were stationed near the ring with mops and buckets to stop water which seemed to be flowing from beneath the stage.

Dubois will now be made mandatory for a shot at the winner of the Oleksandr Usyk-Anthony Joshua rematch, occurring on August 20 in Saudi Arabia.

However, Dubois has already made it clear he wants to face a top contender like Dillian Whyte or Joseph Parker.

“I am ready for whoever is next. I believe this will instantly make me a better fighter now. When you win the world title they say you become next level so names like Dillian Whyte and Joseph Parker are all on my hitlist. I will fight whoever Frank puts me in with next. It has been amazing. Coming out here and winning a world title is what I dreamed of as a little kid and now it has finally happened,” he said.
