Despite picking up the 20th victory and 20th knockout of his career on Saturday night against Carlos Takam, every name in heavyweight boxing has proclaimed they have the capability of knocking out Anthony Joshua.

The latest and arguably most dangerous name to be thrown in the works is that of Daniel Dubois, another undefeated Brit who, at 20 years of age, is looking to transcend the sport of boxing in as quick a fashion as possible.

A fighter from Frank Warren’s promotions, Warren is looking to elevate his own brand back to the big time with this exciting prospect, who, since making his professional debut in April, knocked out all five opponents brave enough to step in the ring with him.

Warren is in no doubt his exciting youngster is destined to reach the very top and has the potential to become the first man to beat Joshua once he becomes more experienced.

“Dubois is the best heavyweight prospect I have ever seen at this stage," Warren told The Telegraph.

“Do not worry about Joshua running out of opponents. I think Dubois could be ready in 12 months' time. I'd put him in with Parker after five more fights. There are always question marks and things to answer but I have a talent here, mark my words."

For Dubois, such optimism can also bring a lot of pressure and expectation to live up to, however, Warren has an undeniable eye for top talent and if the 20-year-old's first five fights are anything to go on, he could well be right.

Warren also confirmed the rumours that his man has actually already knocked Joshua down during a sparring session while AJ was preparing for a previous fight something that will only make any potential clash in the future even tastier.

He continued: “Look, I don’t go crazy about young fighters because there is always a long way to go - but he is by far the best heavyweight at this stage of his career that I have seen in my time in boxing. He has a fantastic jab, real power, he's relaxed, a natural boxer and puncher.

“Not only did he knock Joshua down [in sparring], he absolutely did for Joshua in the gym, as he has done with all the names he has sparred with.

“We've seen Joshua under pressure from [Wladimir] Klitschko and survive, but Klitschko turned the heat off and let him off the hook. This kid would not let him off the hook. I have a heavyweight who has Joshua's number and he just needs more experience and he'll be ready to fight him."
