The two unbeaten prospects top the bill at London’s O2 Arena in one of the most eagerly-anticipated all-British brawls in years while Olympic silver medallist Joe Joyce will also be in action on a night dominated by the giants

The vacant British heavyweight title will be on the line when Dubois takes on Gorman during what will be a huge night of boxing in the country’s capital.

At just 21 and 22 respectively, Dubois and Gorman are already recognised as two of the top young heavyweights in world boxing and the pair will now put their perfect professional records on the line with the coveted Lord Lonsdale belt at stake.

In a fight that bucks the trend of unbeaten boxers avoiding each other, Dubois v Gorman is the domestic heavyweight dust up that the fans have been crying out for.

The O2, London is the place to be to watch it all unfold on July 13, a night of boxing that will be televised exclusively on BT Sport, as well as on the award-winning BT Sport app through our revolutionary enhanced video player.

Dubois, for his part, insisted he had absolutely no reservations over accepting a marquee domestic encounter at this early stage of his development.

"As I have always said, whoever is put in front of me I have to go through them and that is what I have done so far," Dubois, who trains at the famous Peacock Gym in Canning Town, London, said.

“As I proved in my last fight, I want to bring excitement to the heavyweight division for the fans and I promise it will be another explosive night on July 13th.

“I am very confident that I can knock anyone in the world out right now.

"I would have fought Joe Joyce and now I will fight Gorman. I am confident in my own ability that I can deal with everyone out there and I've got what it takes to beat them.

"I believe I am way ahead and better than Gorman and on fight night I will prove it.

"There is no way he will stop me. I accepted this fight straight away and when Frank (promoter Warren) told me about it, it was on."

Gorman, meanwhile, revealed his surprise that a fight that was tipped to take place at the end of the year or beyond has now become a summer showdown that he didn't anticipate his heavyweight rival signing up for.

"I am very surprised, to be fair," he confessed.

"I was probably expecting it to be next year - in the summer time probably - and that is what I thought. When the phone call came it took me only a matter of seconds to say yes so it is nearly here now and only a couple of months away.

“I’m over the moon we’ve got the fight on. Fair play to Daniel, I didn't think he would have accepted it, but he is obviously as keen as I am to fight.

“There should be plenty of excitement and I’m sure the fans will love it.

"I can't see it going 12 rounds and the plan is to go in there and stop him. The winner will proceed onto world honours, I'd imagine. The British title propels you on to the world stage.

"It is good for the fans to see the best prospects like me and Daniel fight each other. You can overcook a fight and I think we have now got it at the right time, I really do.

"Neither of us had to take this fight, but why not? I believe it is the right time."

Hall of fame promoter Frank Warren added: “This is a mouth-watering big punching confrontation between two unbeaten young gladiators who have total self-belief in their respective talent.

“At a time that the heavyweight scene’s big three players are fighting in the States, the next generation are taking the stage at The O2 in London at prime time on BT Sport.

“Daniel Dubois and Nathan Gorman duke it out for the vacant British Heavyweight Title while Britain’s Olympic silver medallist Joe Joyce will be looking to show why he was calling for that Anthony Joshua fight last month!

“Between these three giants they have 35 wins and are undefeated so you know this is heavyweight boxing at its best with fireworks guaranteed!

The two top young heavies in the business are being backed up by another headline act in the shape of Olympic silver medallist Joyce.

Liam Williams will also be looking to put himself back into the world title mix, with the two-weight British champion back in action after two impressive middleweight performances against Mark Heffron and Joe Mullender.

Sunny Edwards now features in the WBO world rankings at super flyweight and the younger half of the affectionately dubbed 'Croydon Klitschkos' will be seeking to bolster his position with another punch-perfect display.

WBO European super featherweight champion Archie Sharp is also on the bill bidding to build on his standout win over Lyon Woodstock back October, having returned from injury to demolish Sergio Gonzalez in two rounds in a Wembley tune-up in April.

With Zelfa Barrett and Woodstock clashing in Leeds on June 15, Sharp will be looking to once again put his own marker down in what is an ultra-competitive division in this country.
