Daniel Dubois is out to make a real statement when he heads over to the United States to make his Stateside debut against Joe Cusumano on August 29.
Dubois was impressive recently as he battered Bogdan Dinu inside two rounds to claim the WBA interim heavyweight title. That was his first fight since that devastating defeat by Joe Joyce last November. And his first with new trainer Shane McGuigan.
Dubois on United States debut
Now the Londoner is looking to crack America, revealing: “I feel good about this and I have been waiting for the chance to get over to America and make my debut. Now it is finally here, and I can’t wait. I’m going over there to make a statement, come away with a good win and then see what is next.
“This is definitely my chance to show them a future world champion. I have made some changes to my team and I am ready to get back up there again and challenge for big belts. I want to be back in the firing line.
“We will see how I look after more time with Shane McGuigan, but in the gym, I have been looking different and better. Now I can’t wait to show it all on fight night. I will be 100% ready for it, while underestimating nobody, and will get the job done.
Cusumano will bring A-game
“I am sure Joe Cusumano will come and bring his A-game and that is what I want, because it makes a better fight. We will clash in there and the winner takes all. The name Daniel Dubois will crack America now.”
Jake Paul vs Woodley is likely to be a big deal in the United States, with the former YouTuber and MMA star locking horns in a Showtime pay-per-view card. The Sunday night timing is also interesting – the recent Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul also aired on a Sunday night and did huge numbers per U.S. reports.
