Daniel Dubois and Bogdan Dinu spoke to the media at the last press conference before their fight on Saturday for the World Boxing Association (WBA) interim heavyweight title at the Telford International Centre, in Telford, England.

Dubois and Dinu have a particular reality each. The British fighter is coming off a tough loss to Joe Joyce and his plan is to get back to the winning track in this great opportunity for the black and gold belt.

“This is the fight I needed to come back with where I can perform and get the devastating win that I need to show I am back. I needed a test and didn’t want to come back with a soft touch. I have had that experience. It’s now the next step in my journey.”, said Dubois.

Dinu, who is a veteran of a thousand battles and has enormous motivation, spoke about what the fight means to him.

“My experience will be the difference. I am happy to fight in the UK because it is the best place for boxing right now. I am happy to be here for a big fight. I have the opportunity to fight for this belt. It doesn’t matter who the opponent is. I am coming to win, take the belt and go home”, said the Romanian about the WBA belt.

This Friday both will comply with the weigh-in ceremony, the last step before their fight on Saturday. Dubois has 15 wins, 1 loss and 14 knockouts, while Dinu has 20 wins, 2 losses and 16 knockouts.

This is the fight I needed to come back with where I can perform and get the devastating win that I need to show I am back. I needed a test and didn’t want to come back with a soft touch. I have had that experience. It’s now the next step in my journey.
