DANIEL DUBOIS CAME face to face with WBA heavyweight champion Trevor Bryan this afternoon ahead of their big title collision in Florida on Saturday, live on BT Sport.


Veteran promoter Don King led proceedings in his own inimitable fashion, explaining that the title of the show, 'The fight for freedom and peace', is in honor of the people of Ukraine.


"This is the final press conference before the rumble on Saturday night," said the 90-year-old fight maker. "I am very pleased and honored to have this press conference with all these great fighters and it is going to be a super event.


"The Fight for Freedom and Peace is dedicated this time to the brave and courageous people of Ukraine, that Russia has decided to invade and declare war because of a bruised ego. It is a family feud that has turned into a tragedy.


Champion Bryan talked of the lack of recognition he has received as the WBA title holder, something he intends to change against Dubois at Casino Miami on Saturday night.
