Dubois blows out Snidjers in two

Daniel Dubois had an obstacle in the way before a potential mega-fight matchup against fellow unbeaten, Joe Joyce and had a little resistance against late replacement Ricardo Snijders who was disposed of in two rounds.

The undefeated (now 15-0, 14 KOs) Dubois knocked down Snijders four times in just over 200 seconds of action before referee Marcus McDonnell mercifully ended the bout that felt like it went 120 seconds too long.

We wrote leading into the fight who Dubois was looking to make a statement for the contest, and while he did what he had to do, this honestly was a legitimate waste of time.

“I was just getting warmed up. I was excited to be out there again and, hopefully, next time I will have a proper fighter in there with me, Joe Joyce or whoever is next,” Dubois said after the fight. “I needed a fight, any fight. This was perfect, just getting in and out, and I enjoyed.”

Dubois is calling this a fight. Me and anyone else who caught this contest that aired on ESPN+ in the United States and on BT Sport in the United Kingdom are calling this tuneup a “non-contest.”

Don’t believe me. Just take the words of World Flyweight title challenger Jay Harris, who was watching the contest with these thoughts:

Fantastic summation.

Jake Donovan of stated that late replacement Snijders would’ve had a problem with veteran actor Ja’Net Dubois from “Good Times” sitcom fame, let alone the prospect Dubois. One thing that was apparent in the fight was that Snijders looked like he didn’t belong in the ring for this one, and that was apparent from the opening bell.

So that’s now that this tune up is out of the way, and Joyce with his, let’s hope the next fight for both of them is against each other in the next 2-3 months in what will be much more interesting for both.
