In less than 24 hours from now, rising heavyweight prospect Daniel Dubois will take on Ricardo Snijders. The card is set to take place inside the BT Sport Studio in London, England. And here’s how you can watch the event at home.
Daniel Dubois is on an impressive winning streak. Ever since he made his pro debut, Dubois has been putting heavyweights to sleep. 13 out of his 14 wins came via knockouts, and all of them happened in less than five rounds!
Originally, Dubois was supposed to defend his WBO International heavyweight title against Erik Pfeifer. But that fight went out of the window as soon as Pfeifer’s team delayed the MRI scans. Thankfully, promoter Frank Warren had a replacement fighter (Ricardo Snijders) ready.
Unlike Daniel Dubois, Ricardo Snijders has tasted defeat before. The Dutch boxer holds a professional record of 18-1. Snijders last competed in 2019; he defeated Istvan Kun via a KO. It is worth noting that Snijders will have an advantage over Dubois in terms of preparation.
How? Dubois was preparing for Erik, and he found out about his new opponent last week. On the other hand, Snijders has been training for Dubois for a while now.
If Dubois can get through Snijders, he will get to clash with Joe Joyce later this year.
The fight will take place on August 29, and fans can catch all the action from the platforms listed below.
