Gorman, but obviously Dubois has a puncher's chance. Gorman is just a more varied boxer, has better upper body movement and better lateral movement too.

He would be more effective inside as well.

Like both of them, but I think Dubois would be too strong for Gorman. Although I say that with no certainty; there's plenty of question marks about both at this stage.

Hopefully it happens this year and isn't built up too much. Like Groves vs DeGale, it's so early in their careers that they can both come again regardless of the result.

W@rren saying today he wants to make this fight for the end of the year...
Saw that earlier, I really hope he does.

"Just like when I put James DeGale and George Groves in together in 2011, I’m not afraid to match rising stars early in their careers.

That fight helped both men become big names in British boxing.

And Dubois against Gorman will do the same for them.

It won’t be the end of the world for the loser, far from it. They may need to rebuild but the foundations will be in place.

But first Dubois must come through a tough test when he faces world title challenger Razvan Cojanu on Friday at the Royal Albert Hall.

The Romanian took Gorman the distance last year so Dubois will look to make an impression by getting the stoppage.

It won’t be an easy task though, as Cojanu also went the full 12 rounds with former WBO champion Joseph Parker in 2017.

This will be a busy year for rising star Dubois with plenty of fights to keep him active and rising up the rankings."

Gorman will outbox him for a few rounds but ultimately won't have the power to keep Dubois off and gets stopped.

For some reason have never been that convinced by Gorman. Not saying that Dubois is the complete package - haven't seen enough of him, yet - but I'd fancy him to be too big, strong and angry and stop Gorman some time from mid-rounds onwards.

I wonder how many tickets it would sell? Neither seem to shift many at the moment.

I'm sure Frank also said he wants to put it on BT Sport Box Office...

Probably teamed up with a world tidal fight a la Cleverly-Braehmer. Maybe Billy in a soft 168 WBO defence?

Anyway I fancy Gorman, more tools and is seems very confident as does Hatton. Just has to avoid the big shots - simple innit

I'm not impressed with Dubois. Has a big punch at lower levels and will still be a respectable puncher at higher levels, but he has so many flaws which don't seem to be being ironed out by his towel wavers. Seen his type hundreds of times before and they nearly always come unstuck when they move up in class. Hope I'm wrong but I can't see it. Gorman easy points win.
