Ahead of this weekend’s clash between heavyweight prospects Daniel Dubois and Nathan Gorman, here are five examples when young stars put it all on the line against each other and how their careers fared in the aftermath.

Many assume putting prospects in with each other early in their careers will hinder their growth, but this list shows that they can make for brilliant fights and also see both men enjoy success later on in their careers.

Dubois (11-0), has racked up 10 knockouts in his 11 contests so far, with the only points win coming against American journeyman Kevin Johnson. His most recent wins against Richard Lartey and former world title challenger Razvan Cojanu has seen him become favourite for this fight.

However, Gorman also holds wins over Johnson and Cojanu, perhaps in less convincing circumstance, and will certainly fancy his chances on July 13th at the O2 Arena in London.
