Daniel Dubois might have a mole in his camp. The brightest prospect in the heavyweight division right now is scheduled to take on former Olympic champion Joe Joyce in possibly his toughest challenge at the heavyweight division. Needless to say, should Dubois get past Joyce, he could earn a title fight.
Boxing fans have expressed their concern about a mole in the camp that could work in the favor of Joyce. Dubois’ sparring partner Solomon Dacres has trained alongside the British heavyweight for quite some time. However, boxing fans started raising questions after Dacron decided to sign with the same management firm as arch-nemesis Joe Joyce.
Dubois said, “It’s not gonna help it. It’s not going to change anything come fight night, it’s still the same thing. Got to get in there and fight and put all on the line, and I am being ready for that.”
Dubois is not worried about the potential mole. He stated that he is only getting better every day. When asked whether he likes Solomon’s move he said, “It’s boxing, you gotta do what you gotta do. He’s out for himself. If that’s the path he is taking, I can’t say too much about that. It’s interesting, but he is not on the wrong foot for me.”
Needless to say, Dubois is confident in his skills and feels no pressure due to his former sparring partner changing sides ahead of the most important fight of his career.
In a first, Joe Joyce vs Daniel Dubois won’t be on the PPV. The promoters took the decision, considering the pandemic. This move ensures that more viewers will tune in to watch the young British heavyweight in his first real test in the division.
Joe Joyce is a former Olympic silver medallist and commonwealth gold-medallist. He is as tough as it comes and boasts an incredible record of 11-0. The British, Commonwealth, and the vacant European heavyweight titles will be on the lines when both the boxers step inside the ring later this month.
