The 21-year-old Londoner showcased his power at his city’s O2 Arena, scoring a knock down in the third round.

Gorman – roared on by his cousin Tyson Fury from ringside – survived but was dropped by a right to his temple in the fifth and the fight was waved off.

“I was very confident in my power,” said Dubois. “I felt him fading.”

Dubois, who now has 12 wins – 11 via knockout – as a professional, added: “I just need to keep working and every fight is a learning fight for me.”
