You win some, you lose some…and from each passing experience…you learn. That is what quality Heavyweight prospect/contender 🇬🇧Daniel “DDD” Dubois (15-1-0, 14KO) has to keep in mind after suffering his first defeat as a professional, to the hands of 🇬🇧Joe “Juggernaut” Joyce on November 28th of last year. Joyce over time managed to fracture Dubois left orbital bone, and inflicted enough damage upon it after breaking it, to where Daniel wilted under the pressure, and couldn’t take it anymore, en route to suffering his lone defeat.
Orbital bone fractures have been a commonplace topic of convo on its impact on a fight, the different variations of fractures, and open dialogue about the severity of the injury, as many people aren’t aware of the type of pain you can feel amid trying to endure the circumstances, while continuously getting hit on the fracture point.
As a boxer, you can only go one of two ways after a defeat like that. You can maintain your focus, and rise to the challenge to get back to form, or the lingering effects of that type of loss can hamper your performance, as hesitation, and doubt creeps into the picture. He will have his litmus test there, as he will be fighting #2 WBA Heavyweight world contender 🇷🇴Bogdan Dinu (20-2-0, 16KO) for the WBA Interim Heavyweight Title.
One may wonder, how the hell is Dinu ranked that high? and how is this for an Interim Title…the answer is pretty simple…it’s the WBA…and questionable practices are an understatement, especially considering their role in the Heavyweight division in the last handful of years. Nonetheless, this is a main event, that will take place at the Telford International Centre in Shropshire, England. BT Sports will carry the event, and its undercard. June 5th is the date.
