Greenwich wrecking ball ‘Dynamite’ Daniel Dubois (12-0, 11KOs) takes on unbeaten Ghanaian Ebenezer Tetteh (19-0, 16KOs) for the vacant Commonwealth heavyweight championship this Friday at the historic Royal Albert Hall.
The 22-year-old, trained by Martin Bowers at the Peacock Gym, insisted that he isn’t overlooking the hard-hitting West African, despite the constant talk of his next fight being against Joe Joyce.
The Londoner said in an interview with iFL TV, “Joe [Joyce] is another challenger out there so we can get it on after this fight. Once I’ve dealt with business on Friday, then we can get it on.
“[I’ll take on] all challengers, really, I’m a warrior so in this game I don’t back down from no one.”
There has also been questions asked of other heavyweights out there who the British champion would be willing to face, one such name cropping up as Tyson Fury, to which he answered tentatively, “I’m a fighter, so I never back down, but it’s something for my team and my manager and my dad to decide when the times right, when they believe I’m ready, but I feel I’m ready, pretty soon, not yet, I’m still young, I’m 22, so more experience, more learning fights and battles I got to come through, starting on Friday. It’s a journey and I haven’t reached the [end], it’s still small steps right now.
When pressed, he continued to assert, “Again, I never back down, I’m a fighter, a warrior this is my job, this is my life. I’ve been doing this for over 10 years, I started at the age of five. Whatever challengers are put in front of me, it’s my job to overcome them and to adapt, and to show what grit I have.”
On his next fight with Tetteh, which could see him lift a seventh title in his 13th fight, he concluded with, “I’m expecting him to bring his A-game, the best of what he’s got, I’ll be ready for whatever he has to bring and come through another devastating performance in winning style.”
Managed by Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren, their plan is to collect every title there is on the way to conquering the world.
‘DDD’ confirmed his plans, “Frank's mapped out a path for me, so I just need to follow it. I’m a man on a mission and my goal is to win the world heavyweight championship, so on the path this is another step.
“I want to have a good fight on Friday and send out a message to the boxing world.”
