DANIEL DUBOIS has always had one dream. To be the heavyweight champion of the world. That’s what went through his mind when he first entered an amateur boxing club at only eight years old. Now 21, and an impressive 9-0 professional prospect, that dream still occupies his thoughts.
“Since I started. From the very first day I stepped in the gym – heavyweight world championship. Words can’t really describe how it was. It was just a very great passion for me to be heavyweight world champion and that’s my goal. [I was] really young. I was tall, skinny. Over the years obviously I worked at being heavyweight, what goes into me, everything that’s gone into me I’m really thankful for. It’s been a journey,” he told Boxing News. “It’s all of it really, the money, the glory, everything. We’re all in the business to get paid. It’s a business as well as a fight so the money, all of it, the whole package really.
“That what the amateurs was for me, to get ready to become a pro. That’s how it is and that’s how I’ve always thought about boxing and the sport I do.”
