David Haye was left raving over Daniel Dubois‘ ‘world class’ performance against Jarrell Miller on the Day of Reckoning card – as he hailed his ‘perfect’ conditioning and game plan. 

‘Dynamite’ sent a statement to his rivals in the heavyweight division with a confident and precise display to stop the American in the tenth and final round to hand Miller his first career loss. 

Haye – a former heavyweight world champion – was in an excitable mood after the barnstorming fight as he singled out Dubois for praise.

‘Daniel Dubois, absolutely amazing! I’m so happy for him,’ he said. ‘What a performance. He really put it together tonight. His conditioning was perfect. 

‘He could just go through the gears and that’s what it takes. It was a world class 10-rounder. The pace was amazing, you got to shout out to Miller – he was the best opponent to get the best out of Dubois.

‘I know he had those two losses to Joe Joyce and Usyk. He’s learned from those and this is what’s come from it. Shout out to Dubois, keep grinding.’ 

Some felt the fight should have been called after the eighth round. Dubois landed a series of combinations to startle Miller. However, the bell went and Big Baby staggered to his corner before dropping down onto his stool.

Dubois looked frustrated but continued to pile on the pressure in the ninth round before the referee waved the contest off in the 10th.

Speaking directly after the fight, Dubois said: ‘I had to prove it to myself. I had to show myself that I’m a real fighter. I silence all the doubters tonight.’

Miller jumped in on the interview and added: ‘Daniel Dubois ain’t no quitter man. Triple D’s got my motherf***ing respect.’

Miller came into the fight at a staggering 333 pounds, a weight considered remarkable for a man of his height – the American standing at 6ft 4in.

Dubois, meanwhile, came in at a much lower 239 pounds, meaning there was nearly 100 pounds difference in weight between the two fighters.

Dubois started well and moved around the ring nicely, landing a series of body shots before looking for the uppercut.

While, the America sat behind a high guard and threw his weight around – looking to tire Dubois out early on.

Miller’s tactics weren’t particularly pleasing for the crowd but they appeared to work as Dubois’ footwork deteriorated after the third.

Dynamite Dubois exerted more energy than perhaps he expected – having to push Miller off him and fight on the back foot.

Dubois found himself more often than not stuck in the pocket with very little head movement – giving Miller an easy target during the fifth round.

Frank Warren – who was sat ringside with Eddie Hearn – was heard shouting instructions to the British heavyweight while he sat on his stool ahead of the sixth.

Dubois landed a series of jabs within the first minute of the sixth round while Miller continued to press forward, showing his fatigue.

Miller began telegraphing his punches, allowing Dubois taking complete control and a land a series of clean straight hands during the eighth.

Dubois finished the round with a devastating combination but Miller was saved by the bell and staggered back to his corner.

However there was no reprieve for the American in the tenth as Dubois finally finished off his opponent – ailing on the ropes – with only seconds remaining in the bout. 

Miller had no answer to the onslaught of thunderous hooks from all sides, leaving the referee no choice but to end the gripping affair.
