Press Conference Quotes

Dubois: "I wanted to defend my British Title but no one would step up to fight me. I want to be fighting world champions within the next 12 months and when the opportunity to fight for the WBC Silver Title was made available, a belt that Dillian Whyte held until his last fight, I jumped at it. I'll also be defending my WBO International title I won in my last fight" said Dubois on his latest assignment.

"Fujimoto has a good rating and is a great stepping stone on my path to the top.

"He will have his own ambitions and I know he was rumoured before to be considered for a fight with Anthony Joshua, but I will be knocking that ambition out of him on December 21st when I knock him out."

Background

Kyotaro Fujimoto is a former K-1 world heavyweight champion who switched to boxing in 2011. He has won three titles in that time and is ranked no.12 with WBA. He is the current Japanese heavyweight champion and has held the national title for over six years and defended three times.

Still just 22, Dubois has already collected a staggering eight title belts in just 13 fights as a professional, with the WBC Youth, Southern Area, English, WBO European, WBO Global, British, WBO International and Commonwealth titles all to his name - in just 39 rounds of professional action!

Last month Dubois was added to the top 15 of the WBC rankings and he now gets to mark the occasion with a tilt at the governing body's Silver title.
