Daniel Dubois to take on Ebenezer Tetteh for vacant Commonwealth heavyweight title

Following Daniel Dubois’ impressive showing against fellow Brit Bathan Gorman last month, the British heavyweight champion now has his sights set on the Commonwealth strap.

Frank Warren has announced a show at the Royal Albert Hall on Friday September 27 and Dubois will headline the event in a bout against undefeated Ghanaian Ebenezer Tetteh.

WBO flyweight champion Nicola Adams will also be on the card and Warren says there is a tentative agreement for Adams to be involved in a unification clash against the winner of the August 16 clash between Argentina’s IBF champion Leonela Paola Yudica and Mexican Isabel Millan – who Nicola beat for interim title – providing the winner comes through unscathed.

Dubois stopped Gorman in the fifth round of their contest at the O2 and that was his eleventh knockout win in his 12-0 record.

Tetteh, 19-0, has 16 KOs to his name and will be the second Ghanaian opposition attempting to derail Dubois this year.

Dubois stopped the 31-year-old’s countryman Richard Lartey in April to win the WBO Global title.

“This is a natural progression for me because I want to win every title available to me on my way to becoming a world champion,” said Dubois on his latest assignment.

“I have won the Southern Area, English and British titles already, so I am heading down what people call the traditional route, while also gaining international experience and rankings by winning the WBC Youth, WBO European and Global titles.

“So I believe this is the ideal next step for me against an unbeaten fighter with a lot of KOs to his name.

“It should make for an exciting fight at the Royal Albert Hall and I cannot wait to get back there and do my thing.”
