Martin Bakole Targets Heavyweight Giants: Joshua, Dubois, Charr in His Sights
Martin Bakole, a rising force in the heavyweight division, is eager to take on the big names he feels have eluded him thus far. Following his impressive fourth-round knockout of Carlos Takam, Bakole and his team express frustration at struggling to secure high-profile matchups in the past. Now, Bakole is adamant that he cannot afford to wait any longer and has his sights set on three specific opponents for his next fight.
The 30-year-old Bakole has been a dominant force, with just one loss on his record against Michael Hunter in 2018. Victories over notable fighters like Tony Yoka and Sergey Kuzman have further bolstered his reputation. Bakole’s team, led by trainer Billy Nelson, often asserts that he’s one of the most avoided fighters in the division.
Securing the top spot as the WBA’s number one contender should, according to Bakole and his team, pave the way for the significant fights he craves. Speculation even hints at a potential bout between Bakole and Anthony Joshua as a final eliminator for Oleksandr Usyk’s title.
Expressing his eagerness, Bakole named three boxers he’s keen to face: “I want Joshua, I want Daniel Dubois, but he is number three, or I want [Regular Champion] Manuel Charr.” With a record of 20 fights, Bakole stresses his urgency to vie for the belts and asserts his determination to seize the opportunity without delay.
While Joshua’s current focus is on his fight against Francis Ngannou, Bakole eyes Dubois or Charr as viable options for his next challenge. His determination to secure a shot at the titles remains unwavering, with a clear ambition to challenge the champions and claim all the belts.
