Daniel Dubois has admitted to talkSPORT.com an interest in potential fights against Joe Joyce and Otto Wallin in the near future.
The exciting, 22-year-old heavyweight prospect recently defeated Nathan Gorman for the British heavyweight title and will challenge Ebenezer Tetteh for the Commonwealth belt on Friday.
His seemingly inevitable next step would be to challenge for the European crown, which is currently vacant, with fellow Brit Joe Joyce waiting to see who the EBU will order him to face for it.
Regarding whether he’d happily accept this position, Dubois said: “Whoever comes first, I’ll deal with them.
“Joe, if that’s the next challenge, then I want him.”
The young star is adamant he wants to win ‘every belt’ on his way to the world title, and added: “I want to be the best and go down as a legend of the sport, so whoever I have to beat, I’ve got to beat.”
Promoter Frank Warren was quick to second Daniel in welcoming a potential fight with Joyce, who he also promotes.
“If they nominate that, we’ll go for that,” Warren insisted.
“I understand where he [Joyce] is coming from. He feels he’s been fighting for many, many years, he was 31 when he turned pro, silver medallist at the Olympic games and he’s looking to exploit the position that he’s got being the mandatory for Manuel Charr’s WBA version of a title.
“I get that and understand that, but Daniel’s not gonna shy away from anything. If he gets nominated for the European, then that’s the direction we’re going in.”
Earlier this month, Tyson Fury overcame a tougher battle than expected when challenged by Otto Wallin in Las Vegas.
Asked if he would consider Wallin as a potential opponent for Dubois on his route to the top, Warren replied, “Yeah, when we made the fight [with Fury] everybody thought it was a mismatch, there’s no mismatches at that level.
“Tyson was hampered though by two bad cuts, one of his eyes he was quite blinded in and he got caught a couple of times as a result of that.
“But Wallin done well. He saw blood and it spurred him on.
“He done well Wallin and he’s got himself into a good position and that’d be a great fight for Daniel, of course it’d be a good fight to make.”
Dubois concluded by declaring his interest in facing the Swede: “Yeah, definitely down the line, pretty soon.
“If I keep winning then all these matches can be made.”
