Daniel Dubois feels he can avenge his defeat against Joe Joyce should their paths cross again in the future.
Last November, the more experienced Joyce used his greater boxing acumen to force a 10th round stoppage with Dubois choosing to take a knee after suffering a fractured orbital bone in his left eye, following repeated punishment from his rival’s jab.
After recuperating from injury, Dubois came back with a bang on Saturday, halting Bogdan Dinu in two rounds to win the WBA Interim heavyweight title in his first fight with new trainer Shane McGuigan. The South Londoner feels he can gain revenge against Joyce with his new direction and the right adjustments.
“I know I could definitely beat [Joyce] with some different changes and doing things a little bit differently,” Dubois told Sky Sports‘Toe 2 Toe’ podcast.
“I know that with a bit more experience and just using my tools properly that I have, going about it the right way, I can definitely beat him.
“I definitely want to get revenge and that’s part of the comeback. I’ve got to right the wrongs and just get rid of my errors and my mistakes and hopefully clear it up again with Joe.”
