However he feels southpaw sister Caroline, 17, who began her profession undercover as a boy referred to as Colin, is perhaps extra naturally gifted — and six-year-old showman Solomon may high them each.
Forward of tonight’s bout with large 6ft 6in Romanian Razvan Cojanu on the Royal Albert Corridor, Dynamite Dubois stated: “I didn’t not give you the concept for her to be Colin.
“I can’t take the credit score for that, she determined to go undercover.
“We simply got here up with it on the fly, the Repton fitness center didn’t permit ladies on the time so we needed to give you ‘Colin’. We simply needed to be very cautious to recollect our strains.
“I by no means anxious watching her spar boys.
“I’m not squeamish and she will actually field, so I by no means needed to be involved. Solomon is the massive performer of the household, will certainly be one thing distinctive and particular.
“He may even find yourself being the very best of all of us.”
In contrast to most boxers who promote themselves nearly as aggressively as they punch, 6ft 5in Daniel clams up when requested to speak about himself.

Prince, 14, is a dead ringer for Daniel and is enjoying a successful start to his schoolboy ring career.
And Olympic youth champion Caroline is a hot favourite for the Tokyo 2020 Games, if the sport gets the green light to feature after a dispute with the IOC.
And 9-0 ace Daniel believes she will guarantee Team GB gold.
He added: “I am so proud of Caroline. Up until now she has won everything she has gone for and now it’s about knuckling down and really focusing on the Olympics.

Giant dad Dave has the been the driving force behind the boxing brood, ferrying them right across London some days to enjoy training and sparring against the best opponents.
But the old-school father was anxious about his little girl taking up the fight game — a concern Daniel never shared.
He said: “I was always happy when she wanted to start boxing because it was all I ever knew and I love it.
“It’s a passion for me, so when she took an interest in it, too, I was ecstatic because it meant I had someone to come to the gym with and train alongside.
“But she has done things her own way, she has all her own style, she has done it all herself. She is really difficult to pin down, has great footwork and is just an all-round boxer, just an amazing fighter.
“I have not taught her anything, we would just train alongside each other but we all have to make it on our own way.
“My dad has done all this for our careers. We are a team and that’s how it will always be.”
