Daniel Dubois set to return on Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury undercard

Daniel Dubois has confirmed his next fight will take place on the undercard of Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury on December 18.

The Brit last fought on the undercard of Paul's fight against Tyron Woodley in August when he knocked out Joe Cusumano in his US debut.

No opponent has yet been announced for Dubois' return in December.

The 24-year-old will hope to continue his winning form having bettered Cusumano and Bogdan Dinu since losing to domestic rival Joe Joyce last November.

And Dubois revealed his next fight whilst giving his take on the fight between celebrity duo Paul and Fury.

He told GiveMeSport: "It is what it is, man. It's going to be lively, it'll be fun, it's going to be a good show. People shouldn't take it too seriously.

"I think I'm out there on the undercard as well in Miami and I'm looking forward to it."

Dubois partnered with Shane McGuigan after his loss to Joyce and his new trainer has guided the Brit to two wins so far.

The heavyweight is confident that Shane – son of ring legend Barry McGuigan – can guide him and his sister Caroline Dubois to become world champions.

"Shane is definitely the man for the job. He's got plenty of knowledge, his dad Barry McGuigan is always around," he said.

"There's constant information coming in your ears, every time you go to the gym you learn something new, so that's great.

He's turned Lawrence [Okolie] into a world champion. I'm confident he'll turn me and Caroline into world champions too. I don't know who will get there first but we'll see.

"We train at a great gym and we've got a great team around us so it's up to us to get the job done."

Twenty-year-old Caroline recently told Mirror Fighting that her brother has been extremely helpful in her preparations for her pro debut in November.

Dubois turned professional in 2017 and – apart from Joyce – is yet to face any other elite heavyweight competition.

Some think his fight against the former Olympic silver medalist came too soon, but Dubois is keen on stepping back in the ring against an experienced opponent.

He said: "The big names, Dereck Chisora, Joseph Parker, those guys at that level. I need to be in a proper fight and give the people a real show.

"I know what I can do myself but I need to be in the fights that test me like that so I want those fights. It's about maturing.

"It's about getting to a stage where these guys want to fight me, and then these fights can happen, once there's something on the line or whatever, I don't know. That's the level I need to be at."
