Daniel Dubois has always been one to do his talking with his fists in the ring rather than at press conferences and during interviews.
As he prepares for a heavyweight clash with Trevor Bryan promoted by Don King tonight in Miami, the American has been trying his hardest to rattle ‘Dynamite’ and throw him off his game in the build-up to the fight.
At yesterday’s weigh-in, Bryan made the bizarre move of taunting Dubois with sanitary towels and throwing them at the Brit.
Dubois maintained his composure but seemed eager to get in the ring and punish Bryan for his pre-fight trash talk, which has included bringing up ‘Dynamite’s’ previous loss to Joe Joyce when the Brit was accused of quitting.
Bryan looked considerably fleshier than Dubois, who has a bodybuilder-esque physique.
The American weighed in at 18st 7lbs, while Dubois hit the scales at 17st 3lbs, as he will look to add to his 16 KO’s in his 18 professional fights so far.
Bryan is unbeaten in 22 professional fights, with 15 KO’s, although he has yet to be tested at the highest level, with his best wins coming over BJ Flores who is a natural cruiserweight and an ageing Bermane Stiverne.
The WBA ‘regular’ heavyweight world title is on the line for this bout, meaning the winner could go on to fight for Oleksandr Usyk’s WBA ‘super’ heavyweight world title and Dubois is the heavy favourite with the bookies and a victory by knockout is by far the most likely option.
