The latest boxing news from Islington

Former Islington amateur Daniel Dubois has been forced to withdraw from his bout against Razvan Cojanu on Saturday with flu.

The heavyweight hope had been matched with the Romanian former world title challenger in a bout that topped a Frank Warren show, which will still be shown live on BT Sport.

In Dubois’ most recent fight, the 21-year-old was taken the distance for the first time in his career by veteran American Kevin Johnson.

Dubois dominated the bout against Johnson and did not lose a single round on his way to securing a comprehensive points win.
