Frank Warren believes Daniel Dubois would have no issue overcoming Anthony Joshua.
Dubois claimed the WBA ‘regular’ heavyweight title with a fourth round stoppage over Trevor Bryan in Miami on Saturday, putting him in line for a future shot at the winner of Joshua’s upcoming rematch with WBA ‘super’, WBO and IBF champion, Usyk which is set to be announced later this week for August 20 in Saudi Arabia.
Hall of Fame promoter, Warren believes his man Dubois has all the tools to beat his former Team GB teammate, Joshua.
“Daniel’s won this belt now,” Warren told IFLTV.
“The most important thing about it is he is the mandatory challenger to the winner of that fight [between Usyk and Joshua].
“I fancy him against anybody.
“He’s a big, big puncher. He can box as well, he’s got a great jab.
“I’ve said it before, I honestly think him and Joshua, I think he, Joshua is made for him.
“A lot of people are going to make their comments, but I’m telling you my personal comment on that, I think he’s made for him.
“But, Joshua has got to get through Usyk first.”
Should Joshua gain revenge over Usyk, the WBA could call for a fight between the pair.
A fight appears more complicated to make after it was announced on Monday that the Watford man has signed a long-term broadcast deal with streaming service, DAZN – a rival platform to BT Sport, who Dubois is aligned with through his deal with Warren’s Queensberry Promotions.
Warren, who confirmed that ’Dynamite’ will return in late September or early October, has also opened the door to a fight between the 24-year-old and former world title challenger, Dillian Whyte.
The 70-year-old promoted Whyte’s sixth round knockout defeat to WBC champion, Tyson Fury at Wembley Stadium in April and insists he would have no qualms with working with ‘The Body Snatcher’ again.
“I’ve got no problem with that,” he added.
“Dillian, contrary to what he thought was going to happen in working with us, I know he lost the fight, but other then that he had a decent experience.
“We did everything as we said we would do.
“Why not? That’s a great fight. You’d like to see that, I’d like to see it and it’s a good yardstick.
“I’ll be speaking to them.”
Hughie Fury and Michael Hunter will vie for a shot at Dubois when they clash in a final eliminator for the Londoner’s title at the AO Arena, Manchester on July 2, live on Sky Sports.
