DUBOIS DYNAMITES TETTEH
Daniel Dubois became Commonwealth heavyweight champion last night with a one round demolition job on Ebenezer Tetteh.
Keen to follow from his success of winning the British title back in July against Nathan Gorman, Dubois did exactly what he should have against the untested Ghanian. Ebenezer Tetteh was an unknown quantity, only small amounts of footage can be found with the previously 19-0 in hardly what you would call contests.
‘Dynamite’ has had a plethora of success. After learning from his bore fest in Leicester last year against Kevin Johnson, the twenty-two year old delivered three knockout victories against Razvan Cojanu, Richard Lartey and to claim the British title: Nathan Gorman. All very different fights, allowing the young man from Peacock’s gym to learn and practice his trade, this weekend has shown that Dubois now needs sterner tests.
Tetteh entered the ring unsure of his surroundings, forgetting his mouthguard as the first bell was about to ring. In the opposite corner, a fuelled, raring Dubois awaited.
Using his highly praised jab, Dubois worked his way around the ring claiming the centre. Following up with his right hand, the fight appeared too easy already.
A clever combination of a left hook to the body and head of Tetteh followed by a right hand scored Dubois’ first knockdown. Eager to get an early night, Dubois went straight back to work throwing calculated combinations to drop Tetteh once again with the referee giving Tetteh no more time to continue.
