Trevor Bryan regrets mistakes before Daniel Dubois
Via Brian Webber: Trevor Bryan (22-1, 15 KOs) regrets the way he performed when he lost his ‘regular’ WBA heavyweight belt to No. 1 Daniel Dubois (18-1, 17 KOs) last Saturday night at Casino Miami, in Miami, Florida.
Bryan said his game plan was to put Dubois in the second half of the match, and then chase him but he veered away from his plan and was eliminated in the fourth round.
It was a poor performance for 32-year-old Bryan, as he didn’t let go and let Dubois 6’5 ″ lift at will with powerful strikes.
If Bryan had researched Dubois’ loss to Joe Joyce, he should have noted that he would have been hit. That should have been the plan for Bryan, but he looked too scared to throw anything.
Bryan says he wants a rematch with Dubois, but that’s not likely to happen anytime soon. Given the way Bryan fights, it’s safe to say he won’t have to fight a second one.
“I feel a bit disappointed. I didn’t do well at all the things that I knew to do, and the boys came out quicker today,” Trevor Bryan told. iFL TV about his knockout loss to Daniel Dubois.
“Scream to the champion, shout to Dubois. He did a wonderful job. We have to sell sport, this is what we do. We love it,” Brian continued.
“I said if there was anyone I was going to hang out with, I would go out like that. Shout out to him. He’s the better man tonight and he did his thing. Hope, May I have a chance to get another belt or to regain victory over him.
“I’m the champion, this is what we do. We are the winners, and this is our workmanship. We have to show what we can do and what we deliver. Again, tonight he was the better guy and did his thing and he was crowned champion.
“As I said, this won’t be the last time you see ‘The Dream,” said Trevor. “I didn’t do well in the things that I did. I could have shot my jab well and get away and get away from him just a little bit longer just to get him a long way.
“On the times I hit him with a stab, the stab definitely affected him.
“If I stuck with that game plan and got him to later rounds, six or seven and then ramped up, I would look a little better as a champ and do a lot more. a little.
“But I allowed him to decide the pace because I didn’t throw me and he wasn’t as much towards me as he was today but he’s played enough because he’s ready and eager to go. He hit the bigger shots at the time and he did his thing,” Bryan said.
