Frank Warren insists Daniel Dubois will meet fellow up-and-coming domestic heavyweight rival and stablemate Nathan Gorman later this year providing the two remain unbeaten, writes Ziad Chaudry.

The 21-year-old from Greenwich stopped Romania's former world title challenger Razvan Cojanu in two rounds at Royal Albert Hall, West Kensington last Friday to add the vacant WBO European Heavyweight crown to his collection of professional boxing titles.

Dubois tied Cojanu, 32, to the ropes then threw a double combination to the jaw.

The Romanian failed to beat the count prompting Steve Grey to halt the contest in 2.48 of round two.

And Dubois, who moves to ten straight victories, admitted he was expected to knockout Cojanu but it was a question of when.

"To be honest I was expecting a knockout," he said. "I knew I trained hard. I knew I was going to knock him out but it was a matter of when."

Gorman, who took twelve rounds to outpoint Cojanu back in December, accused Dubios of avoiding him but the Greenwich man responded: "I don't mind who I'm fighting next, I just fight.

"As far as he is concern I don't treat him no different to any other opponent and when the time is right and we both step in the ring I'm 100 percent sure of a knockout victory."

And his promoter Frank Warren is planning to match the pair on a future televised BT Sport bill.

"They both need some more fights," Warren admits. "They need more exposure to build into a bigger fight. We'll do that fight towards the end of the year providing they both be winning."

On the undercard Peckham's Johnny 'The Pexican' Garton lost his defence of British welterweight title on points to Welshman Chris Jenkins.
