Daniel Dubois ‘capable of knocking out Deontay Wilder’

Deontay Wilder has again been warned of the power he could face against another Briton because of his loss to Tyson Fury.

‘The Bronze Bomber’ has kept a low profile since February. However, this hasn’t stopped promoter Frank Warren from pitching another of his fighters to defeat the American.

Daniel Dubois, a 14-0 bulldozer of a puncher, is making waves in the top ranks. Warren, who also handles Fury’s affairs in the UK, is confident ‘DDD’ could take out Wilder.

British training excellent Billy Graham is also excited at the thought of Dubois vs Wilder and would back the young Londoner to prevail.

Graham, who famously trained Ricky Hatton, says: “Of the current Heavyweight prospects I have seen, Daniel is the one that stands out.

“I wouldn’t back him against Tyson Fury. But he can knock out Wilder or anyone else in the division.

“The only worry I have is Daniel’s inexperience in whether he holds a shot because nobody can take Wilder’s right hand if it lands appropriately.

“He has rhythm. He can move like a good Riddick Bowe and Sonny Liston.

“I know there has been talking of Wilder. While I think Daniel can win, I would wait a little while because he is getting better and better with each fight.”

First, Dubois must take care of Olympic silver medalist Joe Joyce in a rearranged contest this July.

Dubois and Joyce will trade blows for the European heavyweight title, a strap that could add to the British belt already in possession of the KO artist.

DEONTAY WILDER TRILOGY

Whoever comes out on top will be fast-tracked to a world title shot, or potentially to Wilder, dependent on how the third fight with Fury goes down in 2020.

Once the current lockdown conditions are lifted, plenty of fighters – including Dubois – will aim to hit the ground running.

A mass of 200 pounds plus action was halted by COVID-19. Dillian Whyte, Anthony Joshua, and Oleksandr Usyk were all hit by the break.
