ByPeter Axline: In an exciting war, unbeatenDaniel Dubois(12-0, 11 KOs) defeatedNathan Gorman(16-1, 11 KOs) by a fifth round knockout to win the vacant British heavyweight title on Saturday night at the O2 Arena in London, England.
Dubois, 21, knocked Gorman to the canvas with a hard right hand in the fifth round. The refereeVictor Loughlinthen stopped the contest. The official time of the stoppage was at 2:41 of round five.
Earlier in the fight, the 6’5′ Dubois knocked Gorman down with a chopping right hand in the third round. Gorman fought well after getting back to his feet. He clipped Dubois with hard left hand when he was attempting to finish him off.

- Still only 21, Dubois is going to keep getting better for the next six to seven years before he tops out. It’s scary to think how good Dubois could be when he reaches his peak
- Jab – Dubois’ jab was excellent tonight. It helped setup everything he threw.
- Dubois’ movement is slow, and he’s there to be hit by the better heavyweights in the division. If he’d been inside the ring with WBC champion Deontay Wilder tonight, he would have likely been knocked out in the first round. Dubois needs to work on his defense before he shares the ring with the likes of Wilder and Anthony Joshua
