Shane Mosley believes Daniel Dubois (14-0) will be a world heavyweight champion after watching the Brit blitz, Kyotaro Fujimoto.
‘Sugar’ who is set to be entered into the Boxing Hall of Fame after a stellar career, witnessed first-hand the power of Dubois at the Copper Box Arena.

The 22-year-old left his Japanese opponent requiring oxygen in the ring after a brutal right hand, although thankfully Fujimoto recovered.
After telling talkSPORT he plans on challenging for world titles in the next 12 months, Dubois has now received the backing of Hall of Fame inductee Mosley after watching the Peacock’s Gym graduate in action.
“Man, I thought it was a great performance,” Mosley told BT Sport. “He did what you have to do when you fight a guy you’re supposed to put away.
“He put him away and the power, the speed, and the technique was great.”
“He’s very heavy-handed,” he added. “You see that he was looking for that right shot and the guy was trying to avoid it. But he landed the big right hand.”

A fight with fellow Queensberry Promotions star Joe Joyce was immediately touted after the bout, with the ‘Juggernaut’ set to take on Marco Huck for the European title in 2020.
However, Mosley does not feel as though there is any need to rush the youngster, especially when he has as many attributes as he does at such a young age.
