Daniel Dubois: Gorman is Perfect For My Style, I Can't Wait

DANIEL DUBOIS IS well aware that he has been viewed as the silent partner when it came to calling out for a fight against Nathan Gorman.

Gorman has been vocal in expressing a desire for the fight pretty much since his former Team GB teammate and rival burst onto the professional scene, notched up 10 KOs from his 11 fights and won five title belts along the way.

Dubois, with his typical reserve, has kept his counsel, got on with his job and bashed up everyone who has been put in front of him.


That is not to say he did not want the fight and he has proved as much by signing up for a shot at the British heavyweight title against Gorman at the o2 Arena on July 13.

Dubois is ready to dance and firmly believes it will be him calling the tune when the two top young heavies meet under the lights in London.

"We're fighters and we need each other, we need dance partners," reflected the 21-year-old. "This is the next one so let's get it on."

It was thought this spicy showdown wouldn't come about until much later in the year, especially when Dubois was put forward to fight Joe Joyce for the Lonsdale belt.

Joyce is now attending to alternative business and Dubois certainly has no issue with it being brought forward.

"Yes, very happy," he stated. "I think it is just right and the right fight to make. It is perfect for my style and I want to get it on, I really want to get this fight on and I am looking forward to it.

"It is exciting for me and, with the mood I am going to be in on fight night, I can't wait."

We need more fighters like Gorman and Dubois.

[QUOTE=angkag;19764736]Totally agree. Way too much importance placed on protecting the zero, a lot of talent getting slow-rolled these days because of it, and a lot of good fights not happening as a result. Everytime I see a 'Salido doe' post…
