Daniel Dubois, booked to headline a Brentwood Centre card this Saturday against Razvan Cojanu, has had a run-in with the flu.

The show will go on, presumably headlined by Sunny Edwards’ defense of his WBO super flyweight trinket opposite Junior Granados. There’s also Bradley Skeete against Diego Ramirez.

In a bit of fortunate misfortune, though, fellow heavyweight prospect Nathan Gorman lost his dance partner for next week’s Josh Warrington-Carl Frampton card, Alex Leapai. As a result, he and Cojanu will duke it out in Manchester.

Gorman (14-0, 11 KO), Dubois’ mandatory challenger for the latter’s English title, is 22 years old and working his way slowly up the ranks. Cojanu (16-4, 9 KO), who’s coming off of losses to Luis Ortiz and Joseph Parker, is about par for the course as far as Gorman’s opposition goes, though certainly a step up from recent foe Kamil Sokolowski (5-12-2 at the time, currently 5-14-2).
