Former WBC heavyweight boxing champion Deontay Wilder believes that Ukrainian Alexander Usik will successfully defend his WBA Super, IBF, WBO and IBO championship belts against Daniel Dubois this weekend with an early victory over the Briton.
“I also think Usik will beat Dubois,” the American told ES NEWS. “He’ll knock him out in the eighth round once they get a feel for each other. I heard Dubois is not completely healthy, he has injuries.”
As for the fight between Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou on October 28 in Riyadh, “The Bronze Bomber” doesn’t believe it will be a real fight.
“I probably won’t watch that fight. I think I’ll be bored. I suppose it will be a boring fight, a lot of acting. It’s unlikely we’re in for a real exciting fight. If that happens, then the heavyweight division is dead”
According to rumors, Deontay Wilder’s next opponent could be Britain’s Anthony Joshua, with a fight scheduled for early next year.
