Boxing results RECAP: Daniel Dubois stops Nathan Gorman in O2 slug-fest, Joe Joyce wins | Boxing | Sport


Dubois and Gorman go head-to-head tonight in a huge British clash as both fighters put their undefeated records on the line for the sake of heavyweight gold. 

Ahead of their bout, Dubois told Express Sport: “Nathan is in my weight and in the way, I’ve got to get him out of my way, simple as that.

“There’s no real rivalry as such other than the fact I want to put my stamp on him and destroy him and move on with my career to the next level.

“I’ve never been a round predictor, but it will be a devastating performance from myself and it’ll be another win where I can show my talent and do what I do.”

Gorman also spoke to us and stated that it would be the hardest fight of both of their fledgling careers, saying: “We’re both unbeaten and fighting for the British title, there’s an edge to the fight, not just for the me but for the both of us.

“That’s just a load of nonsense. He knows for a certain fact that I’m not his easiest fight.

“There must be people blowing smoke up his a**e I don’t know. He knows deep down, guaranteed, I’m not his easiest fight.”

Joyce, who is looking to get a world title shot in 2020, takes on American Jennings in the 10th fight of his pro career. The Juggernaut’s last outing saw him overcome Alexander Ustinov while Jennings was knocked out by Dillian Whyte’s next opponent Oscar Rivas at the beginning of 2019.
