After promising to make the collision, promoter Frank Warren has confirmed Daniel Dubois and Nathan Gorman will battle it out for the British heavyweight title.
Unbeaten Gorman and Dubois will fight for the vacant Lonsdale Belt on what will be a huge night of boxing at The O2 in London.
The event takes place on Saturday July 13 live and exclusive on BT Sport. The card will also feature unbeaten Olympic silver medallist Joe Joyce MBE.
Just 21 and 22 respectively, Dubois and Gorman are recognised as two of the top young heavyweights in world boxing. The pair will now put their perfect professional records on the line with the coveted Lord Lonsdale belt at stake.
In a fight that bucks the trend of unbeaten boxers avoiding each other, Dubois v Gorman is the domestic heavyweight dust up that the fans have been crying out for.
The O2, London is the place to be to watch it all unfold on July 13. A night of boxing that will be broadcast live and exclusive on BT Sport.
Hall of fame promoter Frank Warren said: “This is a mouth-watering big punching confrontation between two unbeaten young gladiators. They have total self-belief in their respective talent.
“At a time that the heavyweight scene’s big three players are fighting in the States, the next generation are taking the stage at The O2 in London at prime time on BT Sport.
“Daniel Dubois and Nathan Gorman duke it out for the vacant British Heavyweight Title. Whilst Britain’s Olympic silver medalist Joe Joyce will be looking to show why he was calling for that Anthony Joshua fight last month!
“Between these three giants they have 35 wins. They are undefeated so you know this is heavyweight boxing at its best with fireworks guaranteed!
“Joe has a big fight on May 18th against the Russian giant Alexander Ustinov that he has to focus on. We are working with Joe’s team to find the right opponent to secure him a big fight on this fantastic night of heavyweight boxing.”
