Usyk is known as one of the top pound-for-pound fighters today after cleaning up a good Cruiserweight division and then moving on to beat Anthony Joshua twice. Dubois was a great prospect until running into Joe Joyce; he is now considered an interim heavyweight champ(whatever the heck that is). Dubois has not progressed at the rate that people had hoped. He is a robotic big man who doesn’t go to the body enough, but he has good power and has the proverbial puncher’s chance.
Usyk doesn’t seem to have the power at heavyweight, but he is tough to hit and has an exceptionally high boxing IQ. The hoped-for showdown with Tyson Fury never materialized, and that was because of Fury, not Usyk.
Oleksandr Usyk is widely regarded as one of the greatest Ukrainian fighters ever, alongside Wladimir Klitschko, Vitali Klitschko and Vasiliy Lomachenko.
Usyk was known by his nickname of “The Cat” due to his agility and smoothness in the ring. Throughout his extensive amateur career, he earned 335 wins with 15 defeats recorded.
He won gold medals at the Olympic Games, World Championships and European Championships during this period, defeating notable fighters like Joe Joyce, Junior Fa and Artur Beterbiev before becoming professional.
Usyk made his professional debut at 26 and initially competed at cruiserweight level. Soon thereafter, the Ukrainian quickly established himself as the undisputed champion by defeating Michael Hunter, Murat Gassiev and Tony Bellew.
Ukrainian boxer Oleksandr Usyk leaped to the heavyweight competition in 2019, prompting many experts to question his ability to handle fighting at a higher weight level.
Usyk put aside his detractors and cemented his place in history by becoming world heavyweight champion with back-to-back victories over Anthony Joshua.
Experts recognize Dubois as one of the brightest young talents in his division, and many have predicted his success due to his power-packed punches.
Since making his professional debut in 2017, the 6ft5 fighter has quickly shot to prominence in the heavyweight rankings. He hopes to join Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury, David Haye and Lennox Lewis as British heavyweight champions.
Dubois is a limited boxer who must land one of his bombs cleanly on Usyk to claim the upset.
I foresee this being a boring fight as you have the highly-skilled Usyk against a very green and limited Dubois. I like Usyl in a cautious decision win which pays off at 3-1 odds.
