Meet Daniel Dubois, the new ‘Tyson’
Watch out Anthony Joshua! As a new British heavyweight boxing sensation Daniel Dubois just recorded his fifth consecutive knockout in his burgeoning five months ago career, signalling his intentions with a devastating performance, September 16, in London, UK.
After the fight ended abruptly within the first minute of the first round, paramedics rushed to the ring to tend to a dazed, AJ Carter, who was knocked down three times inside 48 seconds, including a finishing blow that saw him fall face-first to the canvas.
It wasn’t the fastest finish of Dubois’ professional career, in his debut Marcus Kelly was knocked out in 35 seconds. 40 seconds was all it took to dispatch David Howe in his third fight
“He’s the hardest-punching heavyweight I’ve seen for years,” Dubois’ promoter, Frank Warren, said after the fight.
“I really mean that. You go back to the Mike Tyson days … that’s what he’s doing. Every punch he throws … it’s a punch, as they say in the old adage, with bad intentions.”
