Frank Warren Talks Daniel Dubois, Joe Joyce, Nathan Gorman

By Frank Warren

THERE WERE A couple of points on Saturday night at Wembley during Daniel Dubois‘ ferocious exchanges with Richard Lartey when it was like watching Warrington v Frampton all over again.

It is not something we are particularly accustomed to with the heavyweights, where both of them enter into a frantic swing-off. It is because it normally ends in one way and that is southbound towards the canvas.

It made for great entertainment though and I think any questions over Daniel’s chin and what will happen when he takes a splosh on the whiskers have pretty much been answered.


I must give great credit to Lartey for playing his part in a smashing fight. He came in very fit, well prepared, in excellent physical condition and he came to win.

It was a fight Daniel will learn so much from. We know what he has got in a brilliant jab, powerful straight shots and nice combinations, but now we have seen him get involved and I have got no problem with that because it happens in fights and he will take a lot from it.

When he did take a couple of big shots he showed what he is about, displayed no signs of distress and just fired back.

It may sound a strange thing to say, but Daniel will take great experience from showing inexperience. I also noticed much more variety in his work and this has come about from the Kevin Johnson fight where he was a little bit repetitive in his work.

He is demonstrating that he is taking things on-board while he is a work in progress and a few more boxes were ticked for me in terms of his development.

There are now exciting times ahead for our heavyweights and we will be making some big announcements next week regarding Daniel, Joe Joyce and Nathan Gorman.

Nathan might well have been feeling a little bit overlooked last week, what with Daniel fighting and news of Joe being added to our ranks. Believe me, I rate Nathan so highly and he is going to play a huge part in our heavyweight planning, the next phase of which will be revealed shortly.

Nathan’s turn in the spotlight is coming.

Despite his 'fatty' look, Gorman is my personal favourite among the three. He's the best to watch boxing, at least.
