Trevor Bryan vs Daniel Dubois: UK start time, how to watch, how much, live stream

Trevor Bryan vs Daniel Dubois goes down on June 11 for the WBA ‘Regular’ heavyweight world title, and we’ve got all the details you need, including the UK start time.

In the bout, two up and coming contenders have found themselves in a position to fight for what promoters are calling a world title.

Unlike most sanctioning bodies, Gilberto Mendoza’s organisation claims to have several belt-holders in each division, which has resulted in some controversy. However, Bryan and Dubois will go toe-to-toe for the ‘Regular’ belt at the weekend, in a bout that carries with it plenty of intrigue.

Daniel Dubois’ road to the fight

In September, Oleksandr Usyk produced a masterful performance, in which he utilised his sensational skill and IQ to outbox Anthony Joshua. This showing earned him the title of ‘WBA champion’, which means both boxers on Saturday are fighting for the ‘regular’ belt instead. In addition, the two fighters have taken rather unusual routes to the bout.

Dubois clearly possesses an enormous amount of talent, but his meteoric rise came crashing down in the form of a KO loss to Joe Joyce. However, in his next outing, the WBA sanctioned him to fight for their interim world title, despite the Brit coming off a loss and the organisation having an active champion at the time.

They ordered him to fight Bogdan Dinu, who’d failed to take on an opponent of note since two back-to-back defeats to Jarrell Miller and Kubrat Pulev.

Trevor Bryan’s road to the belt

The story of the champion is equally unusual. Bryan currently holds a record of 22-0 (15), but his resume doesn’t exactly feature a plethora of big names. Similarly to his opponent, he picked up an interim belt. The American defeated BJ Flores, who hadn’t had a notable bout since losing to Tony Bellew two years earlier.

The WBA then ordered their new title holder to take on Manuel Charr, who held the ‘regular’ belt at the time. However, Bryan’s infamous promoter, Don King, managed to get the German removed from the picture. Bryan instead fought Bermaine Stiverne, who’d lost back-to-back bouts against Deontay Wilder and Joe Joyce.

This weekend, the 24-year-old Londoner takes on the difficult test of flying to Miami, Florida, to go toe-to-toe with an American champion on home soil. If he wants to win the belt, he may have hurdles to overcome. Ultimately, this will give Dubois some much-needed experience and will only help him going forward.

To the delight of fans, they won’t have to set their alarms for the early hours. The bout goes down in the afternoon local time, which means boxing enthusiasts can watch the fight from approximately 11pm UK time.

How to watch Trevor Bryan vs Daniel Dubois

The American is looking to make a massive statement at the weekend, but most have Bryan as the underdog despite his champion status. While the unbeaten fighter clearly has a decent level of technical ability, some fans feel that he’ll struggle to cope with the thunderous power that Dubois has developed a reputation for detonating.

However, if his fans want to watch the bout, they’ll have to depart with their hard-earned cash via FITE TV PPV. UK viewers, meanwhile, can watch the bout on BT Sport 1.
