Will big-hitting Dubois be the new British champion?

Dubois slightly edges the bout with the bookmakers. The Londoner in his eleven wins from eleven fights has recorded ten knockouts. The Only fighter that Dubois couldn’t stop was Kevin Johnson. The American is a veteran of the sport who was stuck in against the up and coming youngster specifically to give him some rounds and get that experience of longer, enduring fights. None of his other fights had gone beyond the fifth round.

Gorman by decision
3/1

Skybet

Gorman also fought Johnson as well, the American having played a part in the development of both of these British boxers. Gorman got the win on points over him in a really scrappy, hard-working performance, which is what trainer Ricky Hatton wanted from him. There is a big contrast between the two fighters here which is worth a look again.

Brawn v Guile

Dubois knows how to land a punch. He has proven it time and time again in his young career. Triple D was supposed to be going to the Olympics next year, but he decided to go pro instead. The 21-year-old is a big guy at 6 ft 5 in and with a reach of 78 inches.

Gorman’s reach is just at 73 inches and he is two inches shorter. But the 23-year-old holds an equally impressive record at W16 L0 and eleven of those wins being knockouts. He is a fast intelligent fighter who shows a fair amount of guile in the ring.

The Cojanu factor

While both of them faced up to specific challenges set for them against Kevin Johnston, they have also both met Razvan Cojanu who lost out on a WBO heavyweight title fight against Joseph Parker a couple of years ago. When Gorman took him on, the fight went the distance with the British boxer taking a unanimous decision because of some smart boxing.

The win saw Gorman hold on to his WBC International Silver heavyweight title. But when Dubois went up against him just back in March this year, it was a different story. The Londoner came out and stopped his opponent in the second round. That gave Dubois the vacant WBO European heavyweight title.

Predictions

Gorman has won his last three fights by points. He is good on his feet and he knows how to box smartly and stay out of trouble. But the power that Dubois is bringing to the table is something else. Something bigger and it Gorman may have a tough time sticking around once he gets tagged a couple of times. The longer it goes on the more likely that Dubois will be able to find a way to land a telling blow to settle things. Dubois by knockout for even money is a decent proposition in this big night for the future of British boxing.
