Dubois Gives Deontay Wilder The Edge To Beat Anthony Joshua

By Tom Evans, courtesy of The Daily Star

DANIEL DUBOIS has had his say on a possible heavyweight clash between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.
 
Dubois, 20, is one of the hottest prospects in British boxing and many believe he could become the next Anthony Joshua – a man he famously downed in a sparring session.

He takes on Tom Little at the O2 Arena on June 23 as he bids to clinch the English heavyweight title.

And with his training preparations all but complete, he has now spoken out about Joshua’s proposed fight with hard-hitting American Wilder.

“It’s two titans meeting in the ring,” he told Boxing Social.

“I’d love to see that fight. It’s a fight I think most boxing fans want to see – it’s the best facing the best.

“It would be a great fight and a great unification as well – we could see one man at the top of the division.”

A deal between Joshua and Wilder appears to be close.

But the venue of the bout could be a stumbling block as Joshua, 28, wants it in the UK while Wilder, 32, is holding out for a fight across the pond.

And when asked who he thought would win the hotly-anticipated match-up, Dubois picked the American.

“I think Wilder based on his last two performances – the way he had to pull through against Ortiz, every fight fan likes to see that,” he added.

“I’m a fight fan as well as a fighter and he [Wilder] impressed me with that.

“I think the speed, the power and the angles is what he brings to the ring.

“It’s not usual. He’s very tall and very long so we’ll see.

“Anthony himself brings a lot to the table as well so it makes for a fantastic spectacle.”

[QUOTE=Vinnykin;18808519]I think Dubois is a lot more flexible and loose than Joshua personally, he's naturally a big man, whereas Joshua was 30 lbs lighter at the same age. The muscles Joshua has put on has made him stiff. Dubois is…

Joshua is susceptible to the cross, Wilder will get it in. Klitshcko did each round (2,3,4) in a row - But my opinion is this, if he's good enough to see Wladimir's cross and begin a defensive head turn in…

[QUOTE=Bobby Shaw;18808286]The problem is that he did it in 2 consecutive fights which brings questions now that he will be fighting someone who can actually bang. The first question was, looking bad was this a one off which can be…

[QUOTE=Kezzer;18807003]Laughable! Actually have a look at a picture of him will you, he’s buit far more like wilder. Really wilder would be givin himself a real headwind if he chose him as a main sparring partner[/QUOTE] What the hell are…

[QUOTE=Just looking;18806465]Height and build ok. But Joshua is way more defensively conscious, which could lead to miscalculations. Now, if he could get Dubois and Yoka it would be perfect[/QUOTE] Dubois is still learning, we don't know what his style will…
