Dubois did his part by getting a fourth-round knockout of Trevor Bryan last Saturday and Frank Warren told talkSPORT that Fury was impressed.

“I was talking to Tyson about it yesterday, we talked about it a lot and Tyson was really impressed with what he did, as was his dad, John. John is a big Daniel fan,” Warren said.

“He’s a young man, so of course he’ll be there. Tyson is now 32/33. Joshua is 33/34 years old. What is Usyk now? Joe Joyce is about 34 now, he’s in a mandatory position with the WBO. So Daniel is the young man among them all,” Warren said of 24-year-old Dubois.

“He won the WBA heavyweight title. What happens is if you unify the title, the WBA makes you a super champion and when you’re a super champion you don’t have to do any mandatory challenges for 18 months.

“So what happens is the guys in the number one, number two, number three positions, they’re just sitting there. They don’t get a chance to fight for the title.
