    Gorman was very poor but Dubois was sensational. Much better than I thought he was.

    Patient, powerful, fit, varied. A man on a mission. At 21 lads, we have a serious prospect on our hands.

    He still needs another test. Lartey was a good one. Gorman was **** poor there and didn’t test him at all. He needs someone who’s going to punch him.

    I don't recall a 21 year old who looked as good since Mike Tyson. Tyson Fury didn't look that good at 21.

    Can’t argue with that.

    I was gobbing off about his power being overrated based on Johnson. I was wrong. Plus he looked like he could have picked up Gorman and shoulder pressed him. Silly strength.

    What's worth noting is this kid is seriously focused. It was mentioned in the build up that he was unfriendly with other boxers and Dubois said "I was told young you have no friends in boxing" - the kid sounds possessed.

    I picked Gorman UD tonight btw lads. I hold my hands up. Sky is the limit for Dubois. He won every minute of every round and got a lovely stoppage. Loojed fresh at the end too. Gas tank is key.

    Dubois is going all the way. Not only that but people will love watching him because he brawls and leaves himself wide open. Casuals love watching that sort of brawling.

    Just a shame he doesn’t have the charisma to go onto chat shows to increase his mainstream appeal.

    Triple D is a decade younger than AJ and Fury

    Personality is an issue, yes. God bless him, there's not much upstairs ha ha. But to be honest, that "shyness" is likeable and if he's knocking out the best in the world, nobody will care about his opinion on the meaning of life :D The kid lives boxing and that's why he's going to the top as said.

    True. His simplicity is endearing for sure.

    I don’t think so. He needs to make him a UK star first. Many casuals still don’t know who he is and as good as that performance was there was now showreel KO to get the viral videos out there. He needs a nice big name he can knock out in devastating fashion next. Helenius.

    We’ve got a star in the making here- very, very impressive from Dubois completely outboxed him and banged him out with serious power.

    Warren is truly back in the big time especially if Yarde can bring home the belt.
