Joshua offered Dubois fight

By Daily Sports Nigeria on September 16, 2023

Two-time heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua could make an appearance in the ring once more in 2023 as Tyson Fury’s agent, Frank Warren, has suggested Daniel Dubois as a potential opponent for Joshua’s next fight.

Joshua has picked up two straight wins in 2023 after suffering consecutive losses to Oleksandr Usyk as he looks to work his way back to taking on the heavyweight elite in the coming months.

The 33-year-old has been linked to a 2024 showdown with Deontay Wilder but with that fight still not confirmed, it’s possible that the British-Nigerian could explore a number of different possibilities and Warren believes Dubois would be ideal.

The British contender travelled to Poland last month but was stopped by Usyk.

Despite the defeat, Dubois emerged with his head held high and he counts himself unfortunate to have tasted defeat after a shot he landed was called low by the fight’s referee.

“I’ll tell you a good fight if that doesn’t happen,” said Warren when speaking to IFLTV on the potential clash between Joshua and Wilder.

“You know what would be a good fight in the UK and people would buy tickets to watch it, and we’ll see who is the biggest puncher and who has got the biggest heart? Him (Joshua) and Daniel Dubois.”

“That would sell out anywhere. You can’t say it’s not going to sell. It would sell. It’s a big fight.
