Bravose Previews: Fights happening in June 2022
by Kate Rosindale on Jun 01, 2022
Among the various bouts to be taking place during the month of June 2022, British fighter Daniel Dubois will be back in action for his heavyweight match-up with American Trevor Bryan.
For Dubois (17-1) it will be his first time making a return to the ring since a win over Joe Cusamano on the undercard of Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley on 29 August last year in Cleveland, Ohio.
It was Dubois’ second victory in a row under trainer Shane McGuigan, who is none other than Irish legend Barry McGuigan’s son.
Prior to this, his biggest and most exciting bout came against fellow Brit Joe Joyce on 28 November 2020. On that occasion Dubois fell to Joyce in the 10th round, for his first professional defeat.
Fast forward to now, 18 months later, and Dubois is once again looking sharp and raring to go. He even has his eye on taking a shot at a world title in the next year or so.
Dubois credits working with McGuigan as being a key part in his journey towards rebuilding after the defeat to Joyce.
This month’s fight against Bryan will give Dubois a shot at a WBA regular strap, and will be his first hurdle on the way to that goal.
The fight will take place on Saturday 11 June at Casino Miami Jai-Alai in Miami, Florida, USA. Promoted by Don King's DKP, the fight is expected to draw a crowd of 6,500 spectators watching in the flesh.
