Fast rising British Heavyweight 🇬🇧Daniel Dubois (12-0-0, 11KO) will face Ghana’s 🇬🇭Ebenezer Tetteh (19-0-0, 16KO) in a 12 round bout Friday at Royal Albert Hall in London. The two will battle it out for the vacant Commonwealth Heavyweight title on ESPN+.
Dubois won the British Heavyweight title this past July when he settled the score with his rival countryman 🇬🇧Nathan Gorman by delivering a 5th round knockout. This Friday’s card, his fourth of the year, has been branded ‘Every Belt’, playing off of the 22 year old’s desire to collect all British/European titles along his journey to World Heavyweight Champion.
His opponent, the unbeaten Tetteh, will be taking his first fight outside of his native Ghana, and although he is nine years older, he appears to be the one making the huge leap in opposition here as his last three opponents have a combined record of 23-30 and all of his 19 opponents combined are 119-185-2.
Tetteh is fighting for the first time in 2019, but believes he will be the toughest test to date for Dubois and hearing all the talk of future plans for the young Heavyweight, he feels he is being overlooked and will capitalize on the opportunity.
“Daniel Dubois has never tasted power like mine. He thinks he is going to walk in and I will be on the backfoot. Once I start landing he will realize he is very wrong.”
“I am not like other opponents. People get in the ring with Daniel and get scared. The difference is that I see Daniel for what he really is. He is not a scary man, he is a scared boy.”
Dubois says he never overlooks any opponent, but has no doubts about leaving with the win Friday.
“It’s just one fight at a time, I don’t ever overlook anyone. I don’t know where he’s coming from but if he’s thinking that, that’s great.”
“All I know is that on fight night I’ll be coming to win and I’ll bring my A game.”
