    A chin? We haven't actually seen it tested yet now have we?:uptosomething:

    I'll wait to heap praise on him until he gets as big a win on his resume as Martin Bakole does.

    Not everyone has to act like Conor McGregor or Broner.

    Patience, jab and devastating power are the other factors.

    Gorman did clip him a couple of times, and he kept his cool. He did well to dispense with someone who many pegged to beat him.

    That said, he's only 21 and has time to develop. Let's see where he goes from here.

    Dubois should fight 3-4 times a year so he can gain more experience and improve.

    Shhhhh, yes and I don't think Sirenko is that good :). It just shows you how low Gorman was on the totem pole of prospects.

    Dubois has good potential. The size, and power are excellent. Skills are above average to good. He needs lot of work needed on defense. Its anyone's guess how good his chin is. I'd say average. It's anyone guess if he can go 12 rounds at a fast pace, and what type of heart he has when hurt, or cut.

    I do like what I see out of him so far. He's one of the up and coming heavies with promise.

    I'm still on the fence with Dubois, he's got some flaws but bags of potential. He's already won the British at 21 which is a fantastic achievement for an heavy weight but we'll only know how high his ceiling is as he progresses through the levels.

    Developmental wise, he looks like a man (a very big man!) but he could get even stronger once he hits his mid-twenties.

    He's shy but he seems like a nice lad and his personality isn't as boring as all the comments about how boring he is on seemingly every single one of his interviews on YT.

    Beat Gary Gorman better than sliced bread ...

    Stiverne is a hogg that still has snap in his bite.
