Boxing phenom destroys opponent in frightening fashion

Rising boxing star Daniel Dubois has scored his seventh-straight knockout victory, dispatching another opponent in scary fashion.

The 20-year-old British boxer knocked Dorian Darch down four times in just over one round on Sunday before finishing him off with a frighteningly big right hand.

Darch only just survived the first round, rocked by the very first punch Dubois threw.

And the young gun wasn't mucking around when the second round started, launching a ferocious attack that left the referee no choice but to call the fight off.

Many have tipped Dubois to replicate the lofty feats of countryman Anthony Joshua, and if he keeps going the way he is there's no doubt he will.

As scary as Dubois' latest victory was, it actually paled in comparison to some of his previous efforts.

In September he won a bout in just 48 seconds, while he scored a 40-second knockout in May.

"He’s the hardest-punching heavyweight I’ve seen for years,” said Dubois’ promoter Frank Warren recently.

“I really mean that. You go back to the Mike Tyson days ... that’s what he’s doing. Every punch he throws ... it’s a punch — as they say in the old adage — with bad intentions.”

Boxing analyst Steve Bunch also offered some very high praise.

“He is the hardest single punch hitter in Britain right now, possibly the world,” Bunce said.
