Patient bomber "Dynamite" Daniel Dubois explodes on Ebenezer Tete
Though his fights are prone to end quickly, Daniel Dubois doesn’t rush things.
The undefeated British heavyweight tattooed Ebenezer Tete with jabs in the opening seconds of their fight Friday night at the historic Royal Albert Hall in London, England.
Tete, who looked tense, made an attempt to block the stick with his left hand. Dubois (13-0, 12 KOs) dug to the body and watched Tete’s hands come down. Bad idea. Dubois let fly with a whistling right hand that sent Tete crashing to the canvas.
The six-foot-inch heavyweight got up blinking. He was probably trying to focus on the number of the truck that hit him.
Dubois, nicknamed “Dynamite” jumped on Tete (19-1, 16 KOs) and unloaded a combination, wobbling him. A hook to the temple floored Tete for a second time. Tete got up once again, but referee Mark Lyons looked into his glassy eyes and waved the fight off.
Tete wasn’t happy with the stoppage, but Lyons likely saved him from a brutal knockout.
The time was 2:10 seconds of the opening stanza.
Dubois, 22, walked out of the ring with the WBO International heavyweight title. He already holds the Commonwealth championship.
The sky’s the limit for Dubois. British rival Joe Joyce recently said he’d like to fight Dubois, but only after he (Dubois) fights a few more times.
Note to Joe: Worry about yourself.
Dubois looks like the real deal.
