Heavyweight boxer Daniel Dubois has been given the all-clear to return to boxing after
a horror cracked eye socket. Dubois has been away from the ring since his first
professional defeat at the hands of Joe Joyce last November and is looking to get
his career back on track after having his eye socket broken in that loss.
Dubois, who was criticized following his defeat, decided to shake up his team by
installing Mark Tibbs as his new trainer with Mark Bowers and brother Tony staying
on in managerial roles.
Dynamite’s promoter, Frank Warren, has since revealed that Dubois will meet up with
all three to discuss his exact plans for his return.
Warren told the Lowdown: ‘
His manager is Martin Bowers and his brother Tony advises him and I understand
they’re having a meeting with Mark Tibbs this week and then see what happens
and see where it goes.
‘I’ve spoken with him a couple of times and he got the all-clear last week so now he
can resume training and he’ll be out sometime in May.’
It was revealed by Sportsmail earlier this month that Dubois – who was initially
told by doctors that he could fight again in April with his recovery going well –
removed Bowers as his trainer in favor of Tibbs as his new head coach.
Dubois himself admitted: ‘I really need a fresh start and I need to do what is best
for me really.
‘Martin and Tony did a tremendous job, it was a great few years and I am very grateful,
we had a fantastic journey.’
