In a bold move, rising heavyweight boxer Martin Bakole has called out Daniel Dubois for a highly-anticipated fight. Bakole, brimming with confidence after two sparring sessions with Dubois in which he claims to have stopped him both times, believes he can defeat the Englishman in the first or second round.
This challenge comes as Dubois is currently in negotiations to face Oleksandr Usyk, who is set to put his world titles on the line in a mandatory defence. Despite this, Bakole remains undeterred and has made it clear that he wants Dubois to be ready for him.
Bakole’s confidence stems from his impressive record of 16 wins, 0 losses and 1 draw, with 12 of those wins coming by knockout. The Congolese-born boxer has been making waves in the heavyweight division and believes that his sparring victories against the likes of Dubois and Usyk have put fear into his opponents.
However, Bakole’s claims of stopping Usyk in sparring have been denied by the Ukrainian boxer, adding to the controversy surrounding Bakole’s brash call-out of Dubois. Despite this, Bakole remains undeterred and determined to prove himself as one of the best boxers in the division.
The potential fight between Bakole and Dubois would be an exciting prospect for British boxing fans, as both fighters possess raw power and impressive records. Bakole’s aggressive style and knockout power will be put to the test against Dubois’ technical prowess and heavy hands, making for a thrilling clash.
As negotiations between Dubois and Usyk continue, it remains to be seen whether Bakole’s call-out will be answered. Nevertheless, Bakole’s confidence and determination are qualities that can only be admired, and his desire to prove himself against the best in the heavyweight division is commendable. Boxing fans will undoubtedly be watching with bated breath as this potential matchup unfolds.
