Frank Warren: Daniel Dubois vs. Joe Joyce is Coming Along Nicely

ON THE SUBJECT of great heavyweight fights, the biggest one on the domestic front is coming along nicely and hopefully we will be in a position to share some good news in the not too distant future.

Daniel Dubois v Joe Joyce is an absolute banger of a fight between two heavyweights of enormous potential and pedigree. It is the biggest fight to be made for either of them so it needs to happen.

I hear the argument over where would be left for Joe to go should he be defeated by a much younger man in Daniel. It is nonsense to say it would be fatal for his career.


Joe is a top-drawer operator, an elite amateur who has taken the plunge right from the beginning in the professional game. It is never a just a loss that affects a fighter’s prospects, it is how you lose and who against.

There would be no shame in losing to Daniel, or vice-versa. If you make a big fight that the public want to see then somebody has got to lose on the majority of occasions.

In any case, certainly in the heavyweight division, one win and you are right back in the thick of it. You put it down to experience and the proof of the pudding is someone like Dereck Chisora, who has had multiple opportunities to come again.

What is for sure is there would be no turning back for either Daniel or Joe once this fight is in place. It will be big, meaningful fights all the way to the top for our big fellas.

Really hope Warren delivers on this and isn't just blowing smoke. It would be an intriguing fight. Difficult to judge how good Dubois really is, because his opponents have been limited. Joyce certainly should be the sternest test he has…

I’m going to favor DDD buts it’s a even fight no one knows who’s going to win it’s a coin toss .
