Joshua or Usyk? Dubois has decided on the desired opponent


On June 11 in Miami (USA), 24-year-old British heavyweight Daniel Dubois (18-1, 17 KOs) knocked out American Trevor Bryan (22-1, 15 KOs) and took away his WBA World title.

dubois surethat problems with the top opposition are a thing of the past. But his main goal is a duel with the winner of the rematch for the WBA Super, IBF and WBO titles between Oleksandr Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs) from Ukraine and Anthony Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs) from Britain: “I am sure that my victory over Brian will mark the beginning of a whole cycle of fights with top contenders. This is what we box for. Of course, I’m ready to meet the winner of the Usyk vs Joshua fight. To tell you the truth, I’d rather have Anthony win. But this is not the most important thing. The main thing is that now I’m in the elite league.

Dubois dreams of “making a few defenses, leaving a legacy, building a championship legacy” and threatens to “clean up the division, but that doesn’t mean I don’t respect the rest of the world’s top fighters.”

Earlier it became known that the rematch between Usyk and Joshua will take place on August 20 in Saudi Arabia. In the first fight, the Ukrainian won by unanimous decision.

Interestingly, the WBA named Dubois’ next opponent – it’s not Usyk or Joshua. And the promoter of the newly-minted champion spoke about all of Daniel’s options.
