    not convinced that DD is top contender material and beating pudding Bryan did not allay those doubts.
    Frank Bruno would have had Bryan out of there in a round..........and most likely DD aswell

    Dunois is decent enough I think. Defo a genuine contender.

    I still have a few niggling doubts about his ticker and trench capabilities though.

    Only time will tell.

    I like how his "drawing power" contributes to whether he can be a champion or not.

    He's as much of a champion as Haney was before he beat Kambosos.

    Got to love everyone writing off an inexperienced 24 year old, and never having world class potential.

    Reminds me of all the comments about how Tyson Fury would get to British level at best.

    Will Dubois become the top man in the division? Well probably not, but I see no reason to write him off at this stage.

    I think the fact that he took on a contender [something which can always backfire on you] early in his career is to be applauded rather than sneered at.

    Do I think he's that good? Not really.

    Do I think he's a world champion? See above.

    He isn't - but perhaps we get behind him anyway. The man is talented, can punch, is still young and has a lot he can give the division. It's a time will tell motto for him at the moment and how he can bounce back from the Joyce loss overall.

    You should've put a poll up, the answer would be overwhelmingly no
