Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren believes competing in British Title fights should be dependent on ability as opposed to age, where the minimum age is currently 21.
Heavyweight hitter Daniel Dubois has steamrolled past his three opponents since turning professional, and the 19-year-old has stated he wants to win every title possible.
Under current rules, the Greenwich powerhouse would have to wait 13 months before he could fight for the Lord Lonsdale belt.
“I don’t think it should be about age, it should be about ability,” Warren told iFL TV. “You can fight for a World Title at 19 or 20 [years of age], but you can’t fight for a British Title.
“The Board of Control are mature and sensible enough to decide whether a boxer is ready to fight for a British Title or not,” he argued.
Dubois earned two first round knockouts against Marcus Kelly and David Howe, and stopped former Olympian Blaise Mendouo in the second round in Leicester. ‘Triple D’ is next in action on July 8th at the Copper Box.
