DANIEL DUBOIS has his British rivals running scared in his bid for a FIFTH heavyweight win of 2019.
Promoter Frank Warren has revealed the 13-0 British champion will thrill fans again in December, after racking up four wins already this year.
But veterans Dereck Chisora, David Price and 33-year-old Joe Joyce are not interested in facing the fearless 22-year-old Peacock Gym prodigy, even with plenty of money on the table.
After watching his starlet demolish Ebenezer Tetteh in one round for the Commonwealth crown on Friday night, Warren revealed: “We offered Derek Chisora and David Price a lot of money to fight Daniel and they didn't want to know, they are not stupid.
“Joe Joyce has been nominated for the vacant European title against Marco Huck, which is not an easy job.
“But if Joe comes through that, then a brilliant fight that is for the British, Commonwealth and European titles, that would be a throwback fight from the old days. But I am not sure Joe would want that fight next.
“Daniel will fight any of those guys, no problem.”
Warren also looks after Tyson Fury’s career and he is hopeful of sorting out his rematch between the Gypsy King and WBC champ Deontay Wilder in the Spring of 2020.
By that time, Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz will have decided the unified king, after the December 7 Saudi Arabia battle, and Warren expects his young charge to be ready to pounce once the titles are untangled.
Warren said: “When Daniel is finishing people that quickly and convincingly we could get him out every week, we mustn't forget he is still only 22 and is learning on the job.
“We are going to get him out in December and I want to step him up and find someone who is capable of testing him.
"But it's very difficult to test any big puncher because they have the ability to knock people out at any time, often early, but that makes it look easy and it's not easy. Daniel is just so fluid and fearless but with steely composure.
“It is going to take at least nine months for the champions or champion of the division to be decided and sorted out, by then Daniel should be a mandatory challenger.”
Hall-of-Fame promoter Warren, 67, knows he will have to be on his toes to keep poachers away from his most prized young asset, who has broadcasters BT Sports purring.
The 6ft 5in KO artist has been expertly trained and managed by Tony and Martin Bowers but Warren knows the business and its dodgy dealers will be circling.
He said: “Dan has got good grounding, especially with his dad around him, but people will come out of the woodwork now, that's the nature of sport and the business.
“Some brightspark will come along and start trying to tell Daniel all the things we are doing wrong but there is nothing we can do about that.”
