London, UK (September 18, 2023) - Queensberry head, Frank Warren, has identified a young talent he believes could become the future face of heavyweight boxing. Eighteen-year-old Moses Itauma has already sparred with top heavyweights like Anthony Joshua, Joe Joyce, and Daniel Dubois, showcasing his potential. Despite Itauma's lofty goals, including breaking Mike Tyson's record as the youngest world champion, Warren urges caution and advises him to focus on each fight as it comes.
Itauma, born in Chatham, UK, has kicked off his professional career, amassing a 4-0 record this year, with his first two wins coming by way of first-round stoppages. Warren emphasizes the importance of taking one fight at a time and not rushing to achieve records.
"I want to see him take each fight as it comes, not to keep looking down the road and thinking about how he wants to be the youngest guy to win a world title. I want him to look at that [next] fight like he is fighting for a world title and go out there and put on a world title performance. Go out there and look the absolute business, that is what I want to see from him, in every fight. I want the world to see what we see in him, because he is exciting, he’s young and I believe that he will be the face of the heavyweight division in the future."
Itauma's upcoming fight against Belgium's Amine Boucetta 7-8 will be a another test on the Zhang-Joyce II undercard this Saturday night in London. While Itauma aims to return to his knockout-winning ways, Boucetta has been stopped only once in his career.
