Daniel Dubois knocked out Ricardo Snijders inside two rounds on Saturday night at the BT Sport studios in London.

The highly rated heavyweight prospect put his body punching on display as he brutalised his opponent in quick fashion.

Dubois began on the front foot and utilised his jab to push Snijders back.

The Brit then targeted the body and smashed home a left hook which floored the Dutchman.

Dubois forced two more knockdowns in the first and the bout looked as though it was about to be stopped, though the bell rang to save Snijders.

He didn’t last much longer though as Dubois scored another body shot knockdown at the start of the second and the referee waved the contest off.

Dubois said post-fight: “I’m just getting warmed up. I’m just really excited to be out there again and hopefully next time we’ll have a proper fighter in there with me. Joe Joyce or whoever’s next.

“I needed a fight, this was perfect getting in and out, and I enjoyed it.

“I can’t wait to get it on with Joe. I want that fight, a big name next, anyone will do.

“I need a step up and that’s the next step. I can’t wait.”

Dubois will meet Joyce on October 24, so long as fans are allowed to attend

“Snijders, all credit for him coming down and taken a beating.

Dubois is definitely a devastating puncher, it was interesting to watch.”
