Daniel Dubois has vowed to ‘make a statement’ against Trevor Bryan in their heavyweight title fight in two weeks’ time.
The Englishman will challenge the American for the regular version of the WBA heavyweight title on June 11 at Casino Miami in Florida.
Dubois, 24, was last seen knocking out Joe Cusumano on the undercard of Jake Paul‘s rematch with ex-UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley last December.
And Triple D is hellbent on bringing the belt back to Britain by doing the exact same thing to Bryan later this month.
“I want to make a statement in devastating fashion,” Dubois told Sky Sports.
“By any means necessary, but I’m looking to make a statement.
“This is an important fight. It’s a fight for my career and I’ve gotta fight my heart out, go in there and do the best I can and more.
“I’ve changed things up. We’ve made the necessary changes, so I’m all systems ready to go.

“Of course. I’m going 100 per cent confident and ready to do my job.
“It’s gonna be a totally different environment and I’m relishing that. I want to just soak it in.
“Camp’s going well, and now it’s just the final touches. We’re ready now – it’s just time for the trip.”
But it doesn’t seem like Bryan is particularly bothered by his comments.
Speaking on Queensberry Promotions’ YouTube channel, he said: “I fight like every fight is my last fight.
“I am gonna give my heart, my soul and every inch, every bit of strength I have in this coming up fight on June 11 because, even with the heavyweights, this career doesn’t last long.
“Every opportunity I do get with names like Daniel Dubois and fighters after this, you want to fight your hardest and show everybody you have the heart and show everybody your skills are going to carry you along.
“So yeah, I am treating this like it is my last fight.
“Daniel Dubois is a strong fighter, he has fought some good guys, but I am on a different level. You saw that when he came up against some good opposition, he quit, gave up.
“You don’t quit, you don’t give up. I would rather go out on my shield. He is an okay guy but he is going in against a nightmare, I will be a nightmare for him and not the fight that he wants.
“Maybe he should have went back and tried to reverse the loss he had against Joe Joyce before he came to the champion.
“Now that he’s said he wants the champion, he begged for this fight and now he has it. He has it and now he has to pay for it. I’m not the type of fighter where you can step in the ring and think you can walk all over me.
“I am not heavyweight champ for no reason and on June 11 I’m gonna show everybody that I am a name that you are supposed to respect.
“I am that man who is going to be sticking around for a long time in this sport. I am taking over, so on June 11 you guys are going to see what Trevor Bryan, The Dream, is all about.”
