Boxing phenom draws Tyson comparisons after scary KO

British fighter Daniel Dubois is taking the boxing world by storm and needed less than a minute to dispatch his latest opponent.

 

The heavyweight phenom is 5-0 since starting his career just five months ago, with all five coming via knockout.

But his latest victory was by far the scariest of the lot, with paramedics rushing into the ring to offer an unconscious AJ Carter immediate attention after a vicious knockout.

Dubois knocked Carter down three times in the opening 48 seconds of the fight, with the third proving to be the hammer blow.

Carter slumped to his knees before crashing face-first into the canvas after a massive right hand rendered him unconscious.

Dubois took care of Marcus Kelly in just 35 seconds on debut and only needed 40 seconds to beat David Howe in his third fight.

"He’s the hardest-punching heavyweight I’ve seen for years,” said Dubois’ promoter Frank Warren after the fight.

“I really mean that. You go back to the Mike Tyson days ... that’s what he’s doing. Every punch he throws ... it’s a punch — as they say in the old adage — with bad intentions.”

Boxing analyst Steve Bunch also offered some very high praise.

“He is the hardest single punch hitter in Britain right now, possibly the world,” Bunce said.

Dubois, who only turned 20 a fortnight before the contest, didn't seem fussed.

“I was very focused and I trained very hard so I expected that of myself,” he said.

“I’ve thrown better (punches) but I’m just trying to improve all the time because whoever they land on will go down.

“I hope he’s okay and I hope he recovers ... It was quick and it’s better that way when I go out there and do the business in the first round.

“I just want to get it over and done with straight away. As soon as the first bell rings I want to get this fight over and done ... I just go out there and do my job.”
