NEW DATE OF SATURDAY 11 JULY CONFIRMED AT THE O2 AS PER THIS QUEENSBURY PROMOTIONS STATEMENT.
🥊 Daniel Dubois and Joe Joyce top the bill at The O2 in an eagerly anticipated showdown between two of the brightest rising heavyweight stars in boxing. The Queensberry Promotions show starts at 7pm and tickets are available.
British boxing is on a roll after Tyson Fury’s recent annihilation of Deontay Wilder which saw Fury claim the WBC heavyweight title with Anthony Joshua already holding the three other recognised belts.
While a showdown between Gypsy King’ and AJ is in the brewing, tonight two British fighters who have their own sights set on world glory (and both hailing from London) go toe-to-toe at The O2 with the vacant European heavyweight title on the line.
Daniel Dubois made a big statement back in July winning the vacant British heavyweight title in five rounds against Nathan Gorman at The O2. The grudge fight ended by a pulverising right hand from Dubois who went on to add the WBC Silver title to his collection with a comprehensive defeat of Japan’s Kyotaro Fujimoto just before Christmas. Dubois’ record now reads 14 victories from 14 fights with 13 ending in a knockout.
While Dubois may have been getting most of the headlines, fellow Londoner Joe Joyce has been quietly going about business since he turned professional in 2017 racking up 10 wins on the spin with only one fight going the distance. Joyce – who missed out on Olympic super-heavyweight gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics by the narrowest of margins – has serious amateur pedigree including a bout against 2012 Olympic champion and Ukrainian superstar Oleksandr Usyk (see below) who has gone onto unify the cruiserweight titles in the pro ranks before stepping up to heavyweight.
With Dubois putting his British and WBC Silver belts on the line along with Joyce’s Commonwealth title, and the vacant European crown at stake, there’s huge incentive for both fighters to take the ‘W’ and state their claim as the best up and coming heavyweight in world boxing.
🥊 Show starts at 7pm tbc.
