POWERPUNCHING heavy­weight DANIEL DUBOIS, 4-0 (4), goes for the va­cant South­ern Area strap in only his fifth pro fight. So far, the long­est any of his op­po­nents have lasted is four min­utes and 41 sec­onds. The hulk­ing 20-year-old should bag an­other early vic­tory against Brix­ton’s AJ CARTER, 8-3 (6), who has been stopped on two oc­ca­sions. Also over 10, Southamp­ton’s heavy-handed JOE PIGFORD, 13-0 (12), faces Green­rigg south­paw KIERAN SMITH, 10-0 (5), in a bat­tle be­tween tall, un­beaten su­per­wel­ter­weights. Pigford can take this one, but he may be forced to go the dis­tance. Strap­ping Il­ford lightheavy­weight AN­THONY YARDE, 12-0 (11) – the reign­ing South­ern Area king – won’t need the full 12 rounds to see off Hun­gary’s NORBERT NEMESAPATI, 25-6 (18).
