Press Conference Quotes
Daniel Dubois said, “I’m following in some pretty big footsteps like Lennox Lewis and Muhammad Ali who fought at the Royal Albert Hall, although Ali boxed exhibitions.
"Myself fighting there is testament to the work I put in to be successful. I want to climb to the top and be world heavyweight champion. The only way to do that is to come through these guys like Tetteh and win well. I feel the best is yet to come.
"Beating Nathan Gorman was a good win. Some things I did well like pumping the jab out and I was very determined. My overall strength and ability was too much for him.
"I feel I’m getting close to my goal of being world champion. It’s nice that the hard work I put in is getting rewards. I’m on a journey and loving it. If he is like another Ghanaian I boxed, Richard Lartey I need to sharpen up on a few things and I might get him out of there quicker.”
Ebenezer Tetteh aims to make history however, “I want to take the title home and be the first Ghanaian Commonwealth heavyweight champion.”
Full quotes from final presser here: http://britishboxingnews.co.uk/blogs/ebenezer-tetteh-warns-daniel-dubois-that-he-s-better-than-lartey
Dubois, 21 from Greenwich, has already bagged the WBC Youth World; Southern Area; English; WBO European; WBO Global; and the British heavyweight title - all in just a dozen bouts. He now vies to win a seventh title in his 13th contest against heavy-handed Tetteh, 31 from Accra, currently unbeaten in 19 bouts.
Tettah will be the second Ghanaian opposition attempting to derail Dubois, who stopped his countryman Richard Lartey in April to win the WBO Global title. Tettah has collected the WBO African heavyweight title in 2017 as well as the Ghanaian cruiserweight championship in the same year, and the WBA Pan African light-heavyweight title in 2014.
The West African boxer has only experienced his last three fights at heavyweight but is adamant he will be a better, harder foe than the last Ghanaian Dubois fought - Richard Lartey.
