Dubois (11-0, 10 KO) had been linked to a fight with Joe Joyce on that date, “The Juggernaut” has stepped aside for now, resulting in the matchup first ordered back in November. Joyce (8-0, 8 KO) will face TBA on the undercard.
Dubois and Gorman (16-0, 11 KO) have both faced Razvan Cojanu and Kevin Johnson recently; Gorman went the distance with both men, while Dubois knocked out Cojanu in two. Dubois was last seen stopping Richard Lartey two weekends ago.
Honestly, I prefer this to the Joyce matchup. Both Dubois and Gorman are young enough to learn and rebound from a loss, and I don’t imagine either of their profiles taking a major hit regardless of the outcome. The 33-year-old Joyce is on the clock, so to speak, and already has an inroad to a world title opportunity with his otherwise-worthless WBA “Gold” belt.
