Prediction,

Good match.
Daniel Dubois could be the future of heavyweight boxing, he is learning and moving forward with his career at warp speed, he has great talent, and although he has a lot to prove, you have to say it is looking good for him so far. I think this might be the toughest fight of Dubois's career so far, I think Tom Little is a similar level to Dorian Darch and DL Jones, so I think it isn't a step up for Dubois, but not a step down, and he is only 20, bags of time, he shouldn't be rushed, he needs ring activity.

I think Dubois will stop Little in 2 rounds, Little will try, but Dubois will be so sharp, aggressive, offensively effective, that getting through one round will be an achievement, and Dubois will get him out of there in the next round. In terms of the opponent, this isn't a new test for Dubois I don't think, but he is fighting for an English title now, which is verh good, and will increase the likelihood of him fighting better opponents in the near future.

Didn't think that would last 2 rounds, nevermind, 4. Credit to Little for being prepared, having guts, getting up from that brutal body shot knockdown, and trying his best, but ultimately, like we all expected, older, less conditioned than his opponent, not the puncher, not the more skilled or talented fighter, only the slightly more experienced fighter, he was motivated, and he did give Dubois a tougher fight than Dubois's previous 7 opponents, but still, losing that fight badly.

I think that was a premature stoppage, I think Little was struggling to defend himself, and he had been hurt, he wasn't having any success, on those grounds, I understand the stoppage, but I think because he hadn't been down more than once, because he was still quite mobile, and because he wasn't taking a serious beating, not really, I think O'Connor could have let that go on.

Dubois was tested in this fight, he was taken past 4 rounds, he proved he can win rounds by being patient, using his jab, and setting up the right hand, waiting for Little to be at his most vulnerable, not making himself a target for the more experienced fighter. Dubois not only carried his power into round 5, but he punched with method, attacked the body with spite and technique, mixed it up, proved he can be offensively versatile when he faces an opponent he can't just blow over in 2 rounds. I was impressed with Dubois, this is what he needed, a bit of a test, a chance to get some rounds, he has a lot of time to keep learning and improving, and I think when he is in his prime, he will be the best heavyweight in the world.

I don't think Dubois is ready for Gorman, that would be a great fight, I think Dubois has more potential than Gorman, but I think, now, Gorman would have the egde, I don't think that fight will happen any time soon.

Matchroom's picture

Dubois is to much of a setting duck, he will be in serious trouble if he doesn't fix that before going up through the levels. As of right now he looks to be a bit of hype more than major prospect.

Champion58's picture

Strongly disagree, he didn't take any more than 1 big shot if that against Little, only criticism is that he didn't stop him early. Dubois is only 20, you can't expect that much from him yet.

Matchroom's picture

Head movement and not standing in one place is not only key but pretty basic fundamentals. That needs to be squared away at HW pretty early, if he goes up in level and meets someone with a punch that can also catch he'll be a sitting duck.

Champion97's picture

Yes, but doing it in the ring, consistently, it might be basic, but fighters do take time to mature, and it is hard when you lack experience, to move your head, without exerting too much movement, and lacking in other areas, but more importantly, you can't take too much from that regarding Dubois's defence, because Little couldn't test his defence, when there are no consequences for not moving your head, you are going to be offensive, and offensively, based on what you see from Dubois, at 20, to say he is a hype job, I think is far off the mark, but we'll see, time will tell, him being the next big thing or not as good as people say, whichever, just our opinions, the facts are, he is 8-0, had great success so far, but he is also unproven, he has a lot to learn, so in terms of the ultimate questions, it just questions, no answers yet. In my opinion though, grade Dubois on his defence when he either takes several good shots, and it costs him a round, or he proves you wrong, makes the opponent miss, one of those two, not just him looking stationary against a guy who can't win a round against, him is battling not to win but to even be there, and surprised most of us by lasting 4 rounds.

Are you impressed by any of the other young heavyweights?
