Caroline Dubois will push to grow to be a compulsory challenger for Katie Taylor’s world titles.
Taylor faces Chantelle Cameron in a rematch at 140lbs this week, however stays the undisputed light-weight champion.
That although does imply Taylor’s 135lb belts haven’t been contested in 2023. Dubois has her sights on these world titles, and would field for an ‘interim’ strap to make sure she finally will get a compulsory shot.
“An interim belt is not a world title, it is not the objective but it surely’s a step in the correct route to get me to that objective. I need to get there sooner slightly than later,” Dubois informed Sky Sports activities.
“We’re ready on [Taylor]. It actually is dependent upon the rematch with Cameron,” she defined.
“Perhaps struggle for an interim so I can push myself as a compulsory. It actually does rely on how the rematch goes with Cameron. Say she loses, say she wins, what does she determine to do?
“Does she come again all the way down to defend? Relating to that query both her belts will get vacated or there will be alternatives for me.”
Dubois wouldn’t hesitate to take the struggle with Taylor, however can’t predict what the Irish star will do in 2024.
“These fights they take a toll in your physique, in your thoughts and I do not understand how for much longer she’s intending on staying. We’re not going to see her in 5 years’ time for positive. However you will note me in 5 years’ time,” Dubois mentioned.
“I need to struggle the large names,” she added. “I need to be within the combine.”
That although may in the end imply transferring up in weight. If that’s the case, these are challenges and alternatives that Dubois welcomes.
“I need to fly by means of the weights as shortly as potential. I need the Chantelle Camerons. I need Sandy Ryans,” the Londoner mentioned. “I need each title you may consider from 135 to 147lbs.
“I need all of the belts. I can go even heavier. I do not understand how lengthy I’ll keep round and the way huge my physique can develop. It actually does rely. You see ladies leap up and I am going to have the ability to leap up as effectively.”
That is what Dubois’ boxing idols have performed and the rising star desires to comply with that instance.
“I am an enormous of fan of individuals like Manny Pacquiao, Canelo, Naoya Inoue not too long ago, Terence Crawford. All these folks they’re nice. However what made them nice is that they did not simply do it in a single weight division, they moved up and did it at one other,” Dubois mentioned.
“They dominated their weight and moved up and up and up and continued to dominate. I need to have the ability to do one thing like that as effectively.
“They’re breaking the boundaries and pushing what’s thought-about to be inconceivable,” she continued. “I need to be somebody like that.
“I need to do one thing that hasn’t been performed earlier than. I need to change the game of feminine boxing and be that new face.”
