Tim Bradley doesn’t hold out much hope for Daniel Dubois despite his through-the-fire victory over Jarrell Miller this month.
The American promised to bully the Brit during both the build-up and in the ring, but the younger man’s gas tank provided pivotal on the night. Miller’s 333lbs frame gassed heavily towards the end of the fight, and Dubois scored a stoppage in the tenth with just seconds to go.
Speaking on Pro Box TV, Hall of Famer Bradley said he knew that Dubois would win beforehand.
“It was the cheater versus the quitter. I was like ‘I don’t know who’s gonna win this fight, is it gonna be the cheater or is it gonna be the quitter? When I thought about it I said the quitter’s gonna win the fight cause the cheater has to cheat … Quitter might be a harsh word, but what else can I say?”
Despite many seeing the’ tenth round stoppage victory as a sign of resurgence for his young career on the ropes, Bradley is adamant that he won’t make any mark on the heavyweight division for as long as he fights.
“Miller is fat and lazy. He’s 300 and something pounds, likes to use drugs, likes to cut corners – there was no way he was gonna win. And he never put Dubois down memory lane. At least he tried, but he couldn’t sustain that pace.”
“Dubois ain’t gonna do a damn thing in the division. I’m just letting you know right now. Miller was just the right guy for him.”
Promoter Frank Warren will be planning for his charge to leave a legacy, and will likely manoeuvre him back into a position of topping the contender rankings in the next few fights.
