Daniel Dubois ready to impress Saturday night
Exciting rising star, English Heavyweight, Daniel Dubois, is set to be back in action in the BT Sport Television Studios in London Saturday night. And, the unbeaten Dubois knows that much more prominent fights are about to happen, especially if he is impressive.

Dubois looked very fit, even at 244 lb., on the scales for his scheduled 10-round bout with late replacement Ricardo Snijders of the Netherlands. Dubois will have to knock off some ring rust, and may do it quickly, as he was last in the ring in December, scoring a second round KO of Japan’s Kyotaro Fujimoto.
Queensbury Promotions boss, Frank Warren,has already made it clear that Dubois is set to fight fellow unbeaten British Heavyweight Joe Joyce, probably in late October, if he is victorious Saturday evening. That fight was scheduled for earlier this summer, but it was obviously put on hold by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Joyce already won easily by third round TKO in his main event fight for Queensberry Promotions in the London Studio earlier this month. That improved him to 11-0 and has him waiting in the wings. Warren wants the fight to be held with at least some fans, socially distanced, in attendance.
The Joyce-Dubois showdown will be eagerly anticipated for one of them to emerge as a possible title contender in 2021. This is, especially after English, WBC number one contender, Dillian Whyte, was cold- cocked by one single punch and knocked out last Saturday night in the Matchroom Boxing main event against Russian, Alexander Povetkin.
The twenty-two-year-old Dubois is not expected to get much of a challenge from his Dutch opponent Snijders, who little is known, is 26 years of age and despite being 18 – 1 has only fought one time in his career outside of the Netherlands. He is replacing German Erik Pfeifer, who has an injury.
