MDP Live - Daniel Dubois is set to battle it out for the world heavyweight title against WBA champion Trevor Bryan in the Spring after his first professional defeat. America's Trevor Bryan currently holds the WBA belt but his delayed fight with Germany's Manuel Charr has just failed for the umpteenth time.
And that means new Mike Tyson's 24-year-old Daniel Dubois, the No1 challenger who has bounced back from his November 2020 loss to Joe Joyce by two knockout wins, is next in line for the title. Bryan is promoted by America's renowned fighting enthusiast, Don King, so negotiations can still get very complicated.
Dynamite Dan - nicknamed Daniel Dubois - will battle for the belt in London or New York before chasing the world title after Oleksandr Usyk, Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte finished their battles.
Dubois' career was on the brink following a tenth-round TKO defeat to Joyce. But back-to-back knockout victories over Bogdan Dinu and Joe Cusumano have seen the Greenwich giants revive their world title aspirations.
Dubois called Bryan after Cusumano's first-round crush last August, saying: "Look at me now, I'm back and I'm ready to go. Whoever's next. Maybe Trevor Bryan. He's got the title I want. But whoever. Come on one, come on everyone."
And promoter Frank Warren recently doubled down on Dubois' desire to take on the regular WBA champions. "Daniel will soon be back in business in one of our first shows of 2022. He has rebuilt this year in spectacular fashion and is now in the hunt for a world title in the New Year."
"The WBA is an obvious path for him to go down as he has been placed in the No.1 spot based on him winning the Interim title and the fight against champion Bryan is definitely interesting for us."
“Success against Bryan will put Daniel in a position to shoot the winner of the Oleksandr Usyk-Anthony Joshua rematch later in 2022. So there are some big fights and nights in the pipeline for Daniel and 2022 will be a defining year for a young man I have always loved. believe destined to be on top."
