DANIEL DUBOIS BLUDGEONED Trevor Bryan in the fourth round to take the WBA world heavyweight title over in Miami.
Just 24, Dubois was in charge right from the first bell and the previously unbeaten Bryan offered up little in return fire. The Londoner did not rush his work and Bryan was first obviously rocked in the third by a flurry of heavy shots and it was a left hook in the fourth that floored Bryan and rendered him unable to continue.
“Now we can make some massive fights for the future,” said Dubois immediately afterwards. “Bring them all on, now I am ready and I will become a better fighter from this. In my mind I was the favourite, no disrespect to anyone but Trevor’s 0 had to go.”
Dubois will now be made mandatory for a shot at the winner of the forthcoming Oleksandr Usyk-Anthony Joshua rematch.
