Frank Warren, promoter of heavyweight puncher Daniel Dubois, wants his boxing challenge WBA “regular” champion Trevor Bryan next.
Dubois’ US debut was officially announced earlier this week.
Dubois will be returning to the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio on Sunday, August 29th.
The British boxer takes on veteran Joe Cusumano (19-3, 17 KOs) as part of the Showtime Pay-Per-View sub-card for Jake Paul’s showdown with former UFC Champion Tyron Woodley.
Should Dubois get away with a raised hand, Warren wants to get him into the ring with Bryan.
Dubois is the top rated heavyweight in the WBA and holds the interim title.
“I want him to fight Trevor Bryan for that WBA title.
Bryan, 31, is promoted to Hall of Famer Don King, who is known to be difficult to negotiate with.
The WBA will eventually order a competitive battle between Dubois and Bryan.
Another big fight for Dubois is a rematch with Olympic silver medalist Joe Joyce, which Warren also sponsors.
As early as November last year, Joyce Dubois stopped in a fight for high stakes.
However, Joyce is the next mandatory challenger for the WBO and has set a goal to land a world title in 2022.
Warren’s plan is to keep his two heavyweights busy.
“Daniel and Joe, they just have to keep them busy. Because at the end of the day we have Joe in first place, Daniel is the WBA interim champion, just keep them busy,” Warren said.
“And early next year, assuming Tyson and Joshua get through their respected struggles, if they both make it, it’ll all open up. You have to find people to fight them and who have to fight them. “Are these guys.
“We just have to move them forward and get them into positions where you force the fights as much as they are mandatory challengers.”
