Joshua & Dubois nearly come to blows!

During the pre-fight interview, Anthony Joshua and Daniel Dubois had an explosive face-off. Joshua began by saying, "Honestly speaking from the bottom of my heart, aside from belts and aside from it being him, I'm just ready to fight." Dubois quickly retorted, "Let's go, let's go. If he wants to swing, go, let's go now."

Joshua didn't back down, sharply replying, "Shut up. Relax, relax." But Dubois, not one to be easily intimidated, kept pushing, asking, "Do you want to go now? Let's go. Do you want to go now?" This only agitated Joshua further, leading him to threaten, "Relax... do you want this f****** chair across your face? Don't disrespect me."


Dubois, undeterred, repeated, "You can't intimidate me," three times. Joshua, maintaining his stance, warned, "Daniel, don't disrespect me." The situation escalated as both fighters stood up, ready to fight, with Dubois asking, "Who do you think you are?"
