Resurgent Daniel Dubois is looking to ‘right the wrongs’ on his CV as his trainer talks about a potential rematch with Joe Joyce.
Dubois is coming off the back of the best win of his career last December when he stopped the huge Jarrell Miller in the last moments of the 10th round of their entertaining matchup in Saudi Arabia.
That came just four months after Dubois stepped up to challenge Oleksandr Usyk for three of the world titles but got knocked out in the ninth round, which was his second loss after being stopped when fighting fellow Brit Joyce back in 2021.
Speaking to Boxing News, Don Charles gave his views on whether a rematch could happen soon.
“Like I said, if that’s what’s going to be then I will examine it. It’s all about timing. I have to look at it, the team has to look at it, the fighter has to have a say, is that really the fight? I would really like, not a tune-up, but going into another hard fight, we have to look at that.”
“In the future, of course, that’s a fight we will look at for him to avenge and right the wrongs in his career so far, Joyce and Usyk, so it’s inevitable we will look at these fights. But he’s had two hard fights back to back. There is a meeting pending with the promoter and we will know more after that.”
While Dubois may be hunting down Joyce for a rematch, he has also called out IBF mandatory Filip Hrgovic this week, and Joyce has business to handle on March 7 when he takes on Kash Ali in his first fight back after defeat.
