Five potential next fights for Daniel Dubois after he demolishes Trevor Bryan with Dillian Whyte a top target | The Sun

DANIEL DUBOIS bashed his way into the heavyweight title picture after knocking out Trevor Bryan.

The fourth-round victory in Miami earned Dubois the trinket WBA "Regular" belt and a mandatory challenger position for the real thing.

But there are several other massive fights that await Dubois, 24, if he cannot get his hands on any of the other champions.

He revealed Dillian Whyte was his top target but the fellow contender is just one of many options on the table.

Here, SunSport looks at what could be next for Dubois.

Dillian Whyte

Whyte, 34, was knocked out by Tyson Fury in April but has been vocal online about getting right back into the mix of things.

He is a free agent and not tied down to one promoter or TV network as Dubois called for Frank Warren to make an offer.

He said “Dillian Whyte, Joseph Parker, all the names out there, they’re all on my hitlist. Whoever Frank matches me up with next."

Joe Joyce

Dubois' only career defeat came in 2020 against Joyce, who made the Londoner take a knee after battering his eye.

Joyce, 36, is now sitting pretty as WBO mandatory for the winner between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk's rematch.

But he remains waiting on the sidelines, meaning if the money is right, Joyce could be tempted into a rematch with Dubois.

Derek Chisora

Chisora remains a popular fan-favourite headliner and returns in a rematch with Kubrat Pulev on July 9.

And promoter Eddie Hearn named Dubois as a future opponent if Chisora, 37, can beat Pulev, 41.

Hearn told SunSport: “All of a sudden you start talking about him (Chisora) in fights with Joe Joyce, Daniel Dubois, see what happens with AJ and Usyk."

Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk

Dubois is now mandatory for the WBA title Usyk, 35, won against Joshua, 32, in September and is set to defend in their August 20 rematch.

It means he could avoid the risk of losing his positioning and wait to fight the winner.

But with an undisputed bout with Tyson Fury, 33, looming later in the year and other mandatories, Dubois is unlikely to sit around.

Lucas Browne

The Aussie's career appeared to be coming to and end after defeat to rugby league footballer Paul Gallen, 40, in April 2021.

But Browne, 43, has bounced back with two wins including a recent upset KO over 32-year-old Junior Fa.

The former WBA champ is a recognisable name in the UK and revealed he has already received calls to return for a British fight.
