THE astonishing upset that Andy Ruiz delivered against Anthony Joshua in New York last weekend has overhauled the entire heavyweight division. It has left rising prospects looking on with curious eyes, increasingly aware of new possibilities opening up in the weight class.

Dubois has sparred with Joshua, back when he was on the GB squad, and on July 13 he will take on Nathan Gorman for the British heavyweight title.

“It’s an important fight. I’m not overlooking anything. I’m preparing 100% as I’ve always done. It’s the same thing for me. Business as usual,” Dubois told Boxing News. “I just give, every fight I have, my all and everything I’ve got. I don’t overanalyse anything really.
