The latest news from the local boxing scene

Former Islington ABC heavyweight Daniel Dubois defends his Southern Area title against DL Jones at the Copper Box next month.

The 20-year-old is scheduled for his first action of 2018 on a Frank Warren Promotion on February 10.

Both fighters are unbeaten, with Dubois having won all six of his professional fights to date by way of knockout.

Jones, meanwhile, has eight wins and one draw since turning professional back in 2014.

Dubois will defend his Southern Area title, which he won with a first-round stoppage of AJ Carter at the Copper Box back in September.

The 20-year-old is also the current WBC world youth champion having beaten Mauricio Barragan in July last year.

Dubois’ last outing was in December when his power proved too much for Dorian Darch of Aberdare, Wales.

Tickets for the event are on sale and can be purchased from seetickets.com or by calling 0871 230 7148.
