Heavyweight hope to fight on undercard of WBO world middleweight title bout on June 23

Former Dale Youth amateur Daniel Dubois will return to the ring on June 23 at The O2 in London.

The heavyweight prospect will fight on the undercard of Billy Joe Saunders’ WBO world middleweight title defence against fellow Brit Martin Murray.

Dubois has been out of the ring since February, when he stopped DL Jones in the third round at York Hall to win the Southern Area title.

Under the guidance of Frank Warren, the 20-year-old has enjoyed a rapid rise to prominence since turning pro last year.

Dubois boasts an impressive record of seven wins from seven bouts, all coming by way of knockout.

Against Jones, the man known as Dynamite was taken beyond the second round for the first time in his career.

Though his opponent for June’s fight is still to be named, Dubois will hope for another explosive victory to add to his ever-growing reputation in boxing.
