Daniel Dubois record
Dubois, who was raised in South London, is one of 11 children, including his sister Caroline, who has won a gold medal in the youth Olympics and is now a professional fighter.
Out of 75 amateur fights, according to Dubois, he won all but lost six. He sparred with Olympic medalists Joe Joyce and Frazer Clarke, Derek Chisora, and others after winning five straight junior championships.
On the undercard of Tyson Fury’s victory over Derek Chisora in December 2022, Dubois defeated Kevin Lerena with a career record of 19 victories from 20 contests. Huge favourite Dubois lost three times to a 75% ruptured ACL before concluding the event in a comically wild bout with Lerena.
Due to early finishes in 18 of his fights, Dubois only faced Kevin Johnson in Leicester in 2018 for 10 rounds before going to the judges’ decision. In just 35 seconds on his professional debut at Manchester Arena in April 2017, the fighter known as “Dynamite” stunned Marcus Kelly, earning him the nickname “Dynamite,” and immediately gained a solid reputation for his knockout power. He would rank two thrilling wins at home as some of his best to date.
As a teen, Dubois overcame Tom Little in five rounds to win the English heavyweight title. Less than 13 months after Dubois won British honours, Nathan Gorman met the same end in the same round. Dubois made a second trip to the US in 2022 and participated in his second fight away from the UK. In the fourth round, he overcame Trevor Bryan, who had won all 22 of his prior fights, to win the WBA (regular) title.

After defeating Bryan and Lerena, the WBA made Dubois fight Usykm. It was highly doubtful whether Dubois would be ready soon after that day due to the wounds he received during the fight with Lerena. It appears that his team is now eager to accept the challenge.
