Daniel Dubois could trouble Anthony Joshua: Frank Warren

Legendary boxing manager and promoter Frank Warren feels young prospect Daniel Dubois can be the next big thing, insisting he can even cause trouble for heavyweight king Anthony Joshua.

Dubois, all of 20, recently claimed that he had knocked down his fellow Brit Joshua during sparring a couple of years ago. “He (Dubois) is the best heavyweight prospect I have ever seen at this stage,” Warren told The Telegraph.

“Not only did he knock Joshua down (in sparring), he absolutely did for Joshua in the gym, as he has done with all the names he has sparred with.”

Dubois has raced to 5-0 (all quick stoppages) ever since he began his professional journey early this year. And going by way he has been progressing, Warren believes his fighter would be ready to fight the biggest names in a year’s time.

“Do not worry about Joshua running out of opponents. I think Dubois could be ready in 12 months’ time,” Warren added.

“I’d put him in with (Joseph) Parker (WBO champion) after five more fights. There are always question marks and things to answer but I have a talent here, mark my words.”
