Jordan Dujon: ‘If the opportunity to fight on a big show came tomorrow I would take it.’
By The Boxing Kid
Unbeaten welterweight prospect Jordan Dujon (4-0) admits he is chomping at the bit to get back into the ring after a sustained period in lockdown.
Over the last few weeks, both Frank Warren and Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom have released their schedules as the boxing world tries to get back to some normality.
It remains to be seen how this will effect boxers lower down the ladder, with many small-hall boxing promoters worried without their main source of income for shows, the boxing fans present, that we could be entering into a bleak period.
But the exciting former national and London champion, Dujon, is doing all he can to make sure he’s ready to go – whenever that may be.
“I’ve just been trying to keep myself fit, you don’t know when this will all end but I’ve used it as a time to reset,” said the 27-year-old.
“To be honest, if the opportunity to fight on a big show came tomorrow I would take it, but I understand it’s a process.
“Had this pandemic not happened, I would have looked to box twice in May and target a title shot towards the end of this year.
“For now it’s just seeing how everything plays out and what is going on. Realistically welterweight is such a stacked division you only look at the belt holders.
Dujon, has been inspiring the next-generation when not keeping himself fit being part of the London’s Black Lives Matter movement, when not keeping himself fit.
His team are no strangers in knowing their social responsibility, being part of the growing and inspiring Streetwise Management headed by Mickey Amoo Snr.
“My team consists of Mickey Amoo Snr as my manager with his son, as my coach,” he explains.
“When looking to turn over, you can chat to loads but the results with Mickey and what he has done for Richard Commey spoke for itself.
“In the amateurs I was lucky enough to win a national title in my first year of the sport, which was nice reward for all the hard work.
“I was unfortunate in the Elite ABAs – but these things happen. Hopefully I’ll be sitting here in 12 months with a professional title and it just just being a distant memory!”
With the right team, the right attitude and talent to match – who would bet against him?
