Daniel Dubois can put himself right back into heavyweight contention with a win over Bogdan Dinu, according to his promoter Frank Warren. ‘Triple D’ is back in the ring for the first time since his soul-destroying first career defeat at the hands of Joe Joyce last November when he suffered a broken eye socket and nerve damage.
Dubois had to listen to critics accuse him of quitting after he took the knee and was counted out by the referee at Church House, Westminster.
This will be Dubois’ first fight under new trainer Shane McGuigan, as he looks to send out a statement against his Romanian opponent.
The bout is for the WBA interim heavyweight title, meaning whoever prevails stands in good stead of landing a world title shot further down the line as they both look to climb the rankings.
Dinu will be no walkover either, having won 20 of his 22 professional fights.
His only two defeats came at the hands of Jarrell Miller and Kubrat Pulev, two heavyweights who have history with unified champion Anthony Joshua.
Dubois will be looking to use his youthfulness and power against the 34-year-old as he looks to avoid a potential banana skin.
The 23-year-old has been sparring with Dereck Chisora and stablemate Lawrence Okolie to sharpen his tools ahead of his return.
“I needed a test and didn’t want to come back with a soft touch,” said the Londoner, who hails from Greenwich.
“This is the fight I needed to come back with, where I can perform and get the devastating win that I need to show I am back. I have had that experience. It’s now the next step in my journey.”
Tommy Fury also makes his highly-anticipated return following his camp in America as he looks to move closer to a fight with Jake Paul.
