Dubois On Wilder: ‘His Reign Is Over Now’
Following praise by Frank Warren, Daniel Dubois is starting to believe the hype surrounding him. The British and Commonwealth Heavyweight Champion also has the same thoughts on Deontay Wilder as Warren does when it comes to fighting the former WBC Heavyweight Champion.
“I’ve got more tools. I’ve got plenty of tools to use. I’ll find a way to win and break him down.”
Dubois (14-0) made his professional debut in 2017. He fought five times in 2019, beating Nathan Gorman for the British Heavyweight Title and Ebenezer Tetteh for the Commonwealth Heavyweight Title in the process. All five were won via some form of knockout. His last fight was a knockout-win over Kyotaro Fujimoto in December. With 13 wins via knockout, Dubois is looking to surpass Wilder’s (42-1-1) 41 knockout wins.
Warren has stated that Wilder was exposed in his February TKO loss to Tyson Fury. Wilder showed no offense in the rematch between the two, and his corner had to end the fight for him. Dubois had some thoughts on Wilder’s lack of offense in the fight. He also thinks that if he fought that Wilder, it would be an easy result.
“He looked overwhelmed from the first second of that fight,” Dubois went on to say. “He couldn’t get a foothold in the fight and he got beat up fair and square. He got beat down.
“If he’s the next step for me, I’m ready to take him.”
Dubois is currently scheduled to face off against Joe Joyce in July at the O2 Arena. His goal is to rid the sport of the older fighters in it If he can win, Dubois believes his path will lead him straight to Wilder.
