Boxing news: Daniel Dubois ‘all set’ for Joshua, Fury and Wilder after Tetteh – EXCLUSIVE | Boxing | Sport


Daniel Dubois is ready to take on Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder. But he needs to get Ebenezer Tetteh out the way first.

Dubois will aim to add the Commonwealth title to his ever-growing collection of belts when he steps inside the ropes at the Royal Albert Hall to conquer Ghanaian Tetteh.

Having ousted Nathan Gorman with unexpected but relative ease in five rounds over two months ago at the O2 Arena for the prestigious British heavyweight title, Dubois set his sights on Commonwealth glory straight away.

But once Tetteh is over with, Dubois wants the biggest names in boxing’s blue riband vision – Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder.

“I’m 100 per cent confident I could beat those guys now,” he exclusively tells Express Sport.

“Obviously when my management think it’s time and believe it’s time for those guys, I’m all set to go.

“[But] Frank had laid this path out for me. I’ve just got to walk it and deliver what people are expecting of me.”

That path so far has seen Dubois pick up Youth, Southern Area, English, British and European titles. Should the 22-year-old add Commonwealth and World accolades to that, he’d become the first boxer in history to do so.

Dubois is expected to walk right through Tetteh – a 31-year-old undefeated fighter who has never fought out of Ghana.

“Things are going good,” he adds. “I’ve literally been training since I finished with he Gorman fight in order to get ready for this.

“I know he’s coming to take my head off on fight night.

“I’ve got to be prepared. As with every fight, it’s kill or be killed. Seek and destroy, that’s my mindset.”

Heading into the Gorman fight, it’s fair to say predictions ran close to 50-50. Plenty believed the 23-year-old would pose serious, technical problems for Dubois.

But those prophecies were made to look foolish, as Dubois stalked and dismantled his pray in emphatic fashion just on July 13 just down the road from Peacock Gym where he trains.

Dubois says: “It was a very important fight for me. It was a defining fight and a must-win.

“And I came through it, which I needed to do in order to reach the next stage, the next level.”
