Trevor Bryan regrets mistakes against Daniel Dubois
By Brian Webber: Trevor Bryan (22-1, 15 KOs) was filled with regrets over the way he performed in losing his WBA ‘regular’ heavyweight title to #1 Daniel Dubois (18-1, 17 KOs) last Saturday night at the Casino Miami, in Miami, Florida.
Bryan said his game plan was to take Dubois into the second half of the fight, and then go after him but he veered away from his plans and was taken out in round four.
It was a poor performance all around for the 32-year-old Bryan, as he wasn’t letting his hands go, and letting the 6’5″ Dubois unload at will with power shots.
If Bryan had studied Dubois’ loss to Joe Joyce, he should have noted that he’s there to be hit by the jab. That should have been the plan for Bryan, but he looked too afraid to throw much of anything.
Bryan says he’d like to get a rematch with Dubois, but that’s not likely to happen anytime soon. With the way Bryan fought, it’s safe to say he won’t be getting a second fight.
“I feel a little disappointed. I didn’t do all the things that I know how to do well, and the boys just came out faster today,” said Trevor Bryan to iFL TV about his knockout loss to Daniel Dubois.
“Shout out to the champ as well, shout out to Dubois. He did a great job. We got to sell the sport, this is what we do. We love it,” Bryan continued.
“I said if there’s anyone I’m going out, I’m going out just like that. Shout out to him. He was the better man tonight and he did his thing. Hopefully, I can get a chance to get another belt or to get back that win against him.
“I’m a champion, this is what we do. We’re prizefighter, and this is our showmanship. We have to show what we can do and what we bring. Again, tonight he was the better man and did his thing and he decrowned a champion.
“Like I said, this won’t be the last time you see ‘The Dream,'” said Trevor. “I didn’t do the stuff that I do well. I could have shot my jab well and stayed away and moved away from him a little bit more just to bring him a long way around.
“On the times that I did hit him with a jab, the jab definitely affected him.
“If I had stuck to that game plan and brought him to the later rounds, six or seven and then stepped on the gas, I would have looked a little bit better as a champion and do a little bit more stuff.
“But I allowed him to dictate the pace because I wasn’t throwing my and he wasn’t stepping to me as much today but he came off enough because he was ready and eager to go. He landed the bigger shots at the time and he did his thing,” said Bryan.
