Daniel Dubois’ early life and amateur career

Born in Greenwich, south London, in 1997, heavyweight boxer Dubois first got into boxing aged nine when his father took him to the gym to keep him occupied and out of trouble.

His sister Caroline is a professional bantamweight boxer, while his brother Prince is also a boxer.

After boxing for England as a teenager, Dubois gained a place on the UK Olympic team with a view to compete in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, but left before the games so that he could go professional.
