British beefcake Daniel Dubois, ‘The New Mike Tyson’ is an awesome sight

British beefcake Daniel Dubois looked awesome on the scales as ‘The New Mike Tyson’ prepares to go to war this weekend.

Hailed as the most exciting prospect in all of heavyweight boxing, Dubois returns this Saturday night on BT Sport 1.

‘Dynamite’ will test his skills against the 18-1 Dutchman and late replacement Ricardo Snijders.

‘The Newest and Baddest Man on the Planet’ is firmly being backed for a stunning knockout.


Being compared to Mike Tyson, who himself is set to fight this year at the age of 57, is a major compliment to ‘DDD’.

His presence at the staredown is a firm reminder of the American legend.

Not only does he look like Tyson, but the youngest ever heavyweight champion is the idol of Dubois.

See how they match up this weekend.


Fighters from tomorrow’s huge night of boxing have weighed-in successfully. All eyes now turn to the BT Sport Studio.

The action begins at 7 pm on BT Sport 1 directly after the conclusion of the FA Community Shield match between Arsenal and Liverpool.

Elsewhere on the card, Sunny Edwards defends his IBF International Flyweight title against former Olympian Thomas Essomba.

Also on the bill, Sam Maxwell puts his WBO European Super Lightweight title on the line against former European champ Joe Hughes.

Finally, heavyweight prospect David Adeleye returns against Phil Williams. Whilst Willy Hutchinson battles Ben Thomas and Sam Noakes faces off against Jordan Ellison.

It all goes down Saturday night on BT Sport 1 at 7 pm.
