Former Heavyweight Champion Larry Holmes Helping Trevor Bryan Prepare For Daniel Dubois Fight
WBA “regular” heavyweight champion Trevor Bryan is getting some expert help for his upcoming fight in June.
Bryan (22-0, 15 KOs) is preparing for his title defense against mandatory challenger Daniel Dubois (17-1, 16 KOs) on June 11 at a venue yet to be announced. And joining Bryan’s camp is someone none other than former WBC and IBF heavyweight champion Larry Holmes, according to promoter Don King.
Holmes’ left jab is often considered the best in heavyweight boxing history. The now 72-year-old is the only boxer that defeated Muhammad Ali by stoppage and is the only boxer still living to have beaten Ali.
He held the WBC heavyweight title from 1978 to 1983 and the inaugural IBF heavyweight belt from 1983 to 1985. “The Easton Assassin” also put together a 48-fight winning streak, which included wins over Ken Norton, Ali and Gerry Cooney, to name a few.
As for Bryan, Dubois could be his toughest test to date. He fought Bermane Stiverne for the vacant WBA title, which he won by 11th round TKO. He successfully made his first defense against Jonathan GUidry in January, which he won by split decision.
Dubois’ sole loss comes from Joe Joyce in 2020. But since that loss, he has added two wins to his resume over Bogdan Dinu and Joe Cusumano.
