Trevor Bryan v Daniel Dubois Scheduled For June 11


Trevor Bryan v Daniel Dubois for the WBA’s secondary heavyweight title has a date but no location.

Saturday, June 11 will see the unbeaten American face the British contender in the second defence of his belt, but no further details have been revealed by promoter Don King.

Despite having won purse bids to stage Tyson Fury v Dillian Whyte and Zach Parker v Demetrius Andrade, Queensbury Promotions was outbid by King for the rights to Bryan v Dubois.

In March, King won with an offer of $3,116,001 compared to $2,503,000 from Queensbury.

Bryan, who is being helped by heavyweight legend Larry Holmes in his preparations, won the vacant WBA strap in January 2021 stopping Bermane Stiverne in the 11th round. He followed it up exactly a year later winning a split decision against Jonathan Guidry.

Mandatory challenger Dubois, who may have hoped for home advantage to face Bryan, has won two fights on the bounce against Bogdan Dinu and Joe Cusumano, respectively, since losing to heavyweight ‘Juggernaut’ Joe Joyce in November 2020.
