The build-up to a fight can often involve the past being brought up and Trevor Bryan decided to choose the worst moment from the career of Daniel Dubois.
Bryan believes that he can replicate the hell that Dubois went through against Joe Joyce in 2020 leading to his first professional loss and a fractured eye socket. The young heavyweight had to suffer a wave of criticism afterwards with many branding him a quitter.
“Daniel Dubois is a strong fighter, he has fought some good guys, but I am on a different level. You saw that when he came up against some good opposition, he quit, gave up,” said Bryan in a press release.
“You don’t quit, you don’t give up. I would rather go out on my shield. He is an okay guy, but he is going in against a nightmare, I will be a nightmare for him and not the fight that he wants. Maybe he should have went back and tried to reverse the loss he had against Joe Joyce before he came to the champion.”
Bryan, who will be making the second defence of his belt, said Dubois ‘begged’ for a shot.
“He has it and now he has to pay for it. I’m not the type of fighter where you can step in the ring and think you can walk all over me. I am not heavyweight champ for no reason and on June 11 I’m gonna show everybody that I am a name that you are supposed to respect.
“I am that man who is going to be sticking around for a long time in this sport. I am taking over, so on June 11 you guys are going to see what Trevor Bryan, The Dream, is all about.”
