Frank Warren: Dubois Will Look To Outdo Gorman With Cojanu

By Frank Warren

NATHAN GORMAN WILL find himself in a curious position when he takes his seat at ringside on Friday night for the occasion of boxing making its long-awaited return to the magnificent Royal Albert Hall.

Nathan is heading south to watch his fellow young heavy Daniel Dubois attempt to outdo him in how he goes about the job of quashing the threat of Razvan Cojanu, who the Nantwich man outpointed at the Manchester Arena in December.

It is no secret that I want to put Daniel and Nathan in together before the end of the year, so this pair – two of the finest young heavyweights in world boxing – are firmly on a collision course.


There can be no doubt that Daniel will want to indulge in a spot of one-upmanship when he goes in against Cojanu and perhaps tilt the odds in his favour. Nathan put in a workman like performance against the big tough Romanian, who is an awkward customer, and he failed to establish his usual fluent rhythm.

Daniel will feel that he possesses the style and power to walk right through him, so we will see. Strangely enough, Nathan will probably be hoping he does just that because he will suspect it will bring a fight between them a little bit closer.

Nathan has, indeed, been the more vocal about wanting the fight to come about, but that doesn’t equate to Daniel not being so keen. Calling out fights is not really Daniel’s game just yet but, believe me, he will have no issues over accepting the fight and is eager to step it up.

What Daniel – or Nathan, for that matter, who fights in Leicester on March 23 – cannot do is look past their next opponent and Cojanu is an experienced operator who has recently challenged for a world title against Joseph Parker.

It is set to be a tremendous night at the Royal Albert Hall as we roll back the years and restore boxing to one of its spiritual homes.

We want to bring it back on a regular basis so that a new generation of fans and fighters can sample the experience of performing in such an atmospheric venue that was so popular amongst fight fans until a couple of decades ago, although we staged one show there in 2012.

Dubois is a good puncher and that's all about him. He's open to be hit himself and is only a matter of time before he meets another puncher
