Daniel Dubois has promised a ‘devastating knockout’ against heavyweight rival Bogdan Dinu in their clash this weekend.
Dubois returns to the ring this Saturday and will be looking to take down Dinu and claim the WBA interim heavyweight title at Telford International Centre.
At just 23, the British boxer is 11 years younger than his opponent, and will have a tough battle on his hands.
After suffering a horrific eye injury in his last defeat against Joe Joyce, he will be keen to show the world what he’s made of.
Dinu heads into the bout with a 20-2 record with 16 KOs, and a wealth of experience he has amassed over his 13-year career.
Ex-Love Islander Tommy Fury, half brother of Tyson, also features in the undercard.

Dubois v Dinu: What has been said?
Daniel Dubois: “I am excited to be back in the ring on June 5 after the frustration of being kept out of the gym and doing what I love to do for a number of months after my last fight.
“This is my chance to remind people of what I am really about, which is winning fights in a devastating fashion. I don’t need to make any excuses for the Joe fight because everybody could see the issue with my vision, but Joe won fair and square and we move on.”
Bogdan Dinu: “Daniel lost a tough war last time he boxed, but in my opinion, he needs more experience. I have the experience. I don’t know if they have made a mistake (picking me). I am prepared, coming to win and it will be a war from the first round.”
“I am not surprised he has picked me for his return. If you want to win titles then you must always take on good fighters on big shows. “Daniel is a good fighter, but he needs to learn and have more fights. Good fights, not just against regular fighters who lose in the first round.”
