Daniel Dubois has signed a five-year contract extension with Frank Warren.
The 22-year-old British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion is being touted as one of the most promising in world boxing.
Dubois, who has also picked up the WBC Youth, Southern Area, English, WBO European, WBO Global, WBO International and WBC Silver titles since turning professional with the Hall of Fame promoter Warren, is currently beginning camp for his next fight.
‘DDD’ will take on Olympic silver medallist Joe Joyce, 34, in a battle of unbeaten British heavyweights on April 11 at the O2 Arena in London, exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office.
And Warren has been handed a boost by his charge ahead of the showdown as Dubois has committed his future to Queensberry Promotions by inking a new long-term deal.
“It is no secret that I believe Daniel to be the best young heavyweight in world boxing,” said Warren when revealing the news. “I am delighted that he has signed a five-year extension to his existing contract with us that will see us looking after his interests for most of the rest of this decade.”
Dubois made his professional debut at Manchester Arena back in April 2017, as part of a card topped by Liam Smith’s vacant WBO interim super-welterweight title win over Liam Williams, when he stopped Marcus Kelly after just 35 seconds of the first round.
“I believe this to be a fantastic development for both parties.
“And I also believe he will be our next world heavyweight champion after Tyson Fury has settled his score with Deontay Wilder.”
Fury challenges Wilder for his WBC world heavyweight title and the vacant Ring Magazine belt on February 22 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office at a cost of £24.95.
