Martin Bakole, a rising heavyweight in the boxing world, has set his sights on securing a mandatory title shot against Daniel Dubois. The Congolese fighter, known for his powerful punches, expressed his desire to face Dubois and prove his worth in the ring.
Bakole, who has been making waves in the heavyweight division, believes he has what it takes to challenge Dubois and come out on top. He recognizes the talent and skills of his opponent, but is confident in his own abilities and feels that he is ready to take on the challenge.
He is expected to become a lot busier in 2023 - after signing a promotional agreement with Ben Shalom's Boxxer.
Shalom believes the WBA is close to ordering a Dubois vs. Bakole mandatory fight.
"I think they're about to order a mandatory for Daniel, Martin wants that title. Martin is top of the tree in the WBA now," Shalom said to Sky Sports.
"With his win against Tony Yoka, he was so impressive to go out and do that in Paris against a former Olympic champion. On the circuit he's possibly the most avoided heavyweight out there. Delighted to have him. I think he could challenge for world titles very soon."
The heavyweight division is filled with talented fighters, but Bakole is determined to make his mark and become a household name in the boxing world. With a strong desire to prove himself, he aims to secure a mandatory shot at the title and face off against Dubole in the near future.
This potential matchup has boxing fans on the edge of their seats, and it's a fight that could determine the future of the heavyweight division. Will Bakole rise to the occasion and secure his place among the elite? Or will Dubois continue to dominate the ring? Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure - this is a bout that you won't want to miss.
