Daniel Dubois and Anthony Joshua have ultimately been linked with one another again following a knockout win for Dubois this weekend.
Dubois marched on to 7-0-7KO with a stoppage win last night over DL Jones at York Hall.
20-year-old Dubois since turning pro has had some comparisons to Anthony Joshua due to the similar physique and fight style the pair have.
Dubois is obviously a long way off that level just yet of course.
He is still very green and learning on the job but his punching power does show promise.
For those comparing him to Joshua at this stage however, they might be doing so a bit prematurely in all fairness.
The pair’s names inevitably got linked again last night with the following some of the post-fight reaction from boxing fans to last night’s win by Dubois so far:
AJ Carter, then DL Jones…expecting Dubois to fight BA Baracus next ?

To be fair to Frank. He can build these guys together. They make no difference to the Likes of a Frampton undercards viewing figs. Just loves a weak opponent. Could use more ex AJ opponents for Dubois, build that comparison to casuals.

If you’re a hater of the AJ hype, I hope you feel the same about Dubois and Yarde. Actually shite the pair of them. Yarde snorts Dianabol too….

Everybody has gone full retard with Dubois though. People are so desperate for someone to knock AJ off his perch they will go balls deep on anyone now.

Na mate seen comments on them, seen someone say Yarde beats AJ ?
Dubois interesting though…

Following Dubois for a long while now, I’m fully convinced he’s gonna better AJ one day. World champ in the making. https://t.co/Q6xVkbJ1BW

Anyone else notice it’s just the AJ fans slating Dubois? Same way they do Fury. They fucking hate competition.

Always the same with Heavyweights until they’ve fought ‘someone’. Unfortunately prospects of his pedigree always are questioned. People still question AJ, Wilder etc. Damn Holyfield did til he fought Tyson! Dubois isn’t the finished article but could be special

Daniel Dubois has mad potential. That punching power is AJ esque

Daniel Dubois is a scary boxer, Next few years he’ll give AJ the fight of his life

Wonder how long we have to wait for Dubois to knock aj out again

I hate the AJ v Fury fanboy stuff. Until the last decade I only saw 1 British heavyweight who could mix it at world level in my lifetime that was Lewis. We’re lucky to have Fury and AJ right now with the likes of Dubois coming through.
