Unleashing the Thunder: Usyk vs Dubois – The Ultimate Clash for Boxing’s Coveted Title


Usyk, 36, was expected to have an undisputed showdown with boxing’s pound-for-pound king, Tyson Fury earlier this year.

But the heated negotiations collapsed which handed Dangerous DDD the opportunity of a lifetime.

Dubois, 25, goes into this fight off the back of a hard-fought TKO triumph over South African star Kevin Lerena.

However, Usyk’s confidence will be through the roof as not only is he 20-0 in his professional boxing career.
