Exciting unbeaten heavyweight boxer Daniel Dubois may be set for a world title shot in 2021 if he can get past Joe Joyce in November.
Dubois has a 15-0 record since turning pro in 2017 and is being tipped by many pundits in the game to be one of the leading boxers in his division in the near future.
Dynamite is already ranked as high as number two with the WBO. He won their international title following a victory over Ebenezer Tetteh in September 2019. The Brit has since defended that crown twice, with wins coming against Kyotaro Fujimoto and Ricardo Snijders respectively.
It is with the WBO that Dubois is most likely to get his maiden world title opportunity. Anthony Joshua holds their belt and at some point, must face their number one contender Oleksandr Usyk. If AJ is unable to meet his obligation of facing the organisation’s challenger, the belt could become vacant. Dubois would then merit the chance to fight for the crown given his ranking.
Joyce is set to be Dubois’ toughest test to date. The man from London had a lot of success as an amateur and has yet to taste to defeat so far in his professional career.

Joyce is as big as 11/4 to cause an upset at the 02 Arena on 28th November. He will be full of confidence after his latest success over Michael Wallisch back in July. Juggernaut stopped his German opponent in the third round of that heavyweight clash. Unlike his next opponent, Joyce joined the pro ranks at a much older age. He will have aspirations of winning a world championship one day himself.
Joyce proved he is a top-class operator with several impressive wins in 2019 over some experienced opponents. By the start of the year he stopped former WBC world champion Bermane Stiverne in the sixth round in London.
Alexander Ustinov then lasted just three rounds against Juggernaut in a bout that was scheduled for 10 rounds. The Russian has 36 wins as a professional so to stop him early into the contest was an impressive achievement.
Joyce got the better of American Bryant Jennings on points at the O2 Arena in July 2019. The judges were unanimous with their decision as Joyce was the busier of the two men and landed the most punches.
Whoever comes out on top of these exciting young British boxers next month will be a step closer to their dream of a world title shot. The betting suggests it is likely to be Dubois but he will be fully aware of the threat Joyce will pose to him.
