Former Heavyweight Champion Frank Bruno has poured the praise on 20-year-old Daniel Dubois after being impressed with the blistering start to the professional ranks the young athlete has made.

Speaking to the Daily Mail the popular Brit demonstrated his faith in Dubois, comparing him to current Champion Anthony Joshua, “I think Daniel will be bigger than A.J.”

Having witnessed the prospect train under Tony Bowers at the Peacock Gym, Bruno has clearly been left with a very strong impression. The 56-year-old iterated that Dubois just needed to concentrate on his boxing and remain grounded and the success would come.

“He’s a very, very good prospect and only needs to stay on his game, focused and hungry. Daniel is keen, thirsty and a nice level-headed guy.”

Dubois has demonstrated devastating punching power and speed in his fledgling career, racking up seven KO’s in seven fights and is one of the most exciting up-and-coming Heavyweights in the country.
