Oleksandr Usyk vs. Daniel Dubois - Betting Odds

Intriguing Showdown Set for August 12: Daniel Dubois Takes on Ukrainian Maestro at Wroclaw Stadium in Poland. Is Dubois' Ambition Justified?

On August 12, the Englishman, Daniel Dubois, is set to face the Ukrainian wizard at Wroclaw Stadium in Poland. Many are questioning the wisdom of his decision. Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) is preparing for his second defense of the unified heavyweight crown, which he claimed from Anthony Joshua in 2021, including a successful rematch against AJ.

At 36 years old, Usyk, a southpaw, has proven himself as one of the most skilled fighters in the world. Meanwhile, 25-year-old Dubois holds a record of 19-1 (18 KOs) and is currently riding a four-fight winning streak since his 2020 loss to Joe Joyce in an all-British showdown. His June 2022 victory over American veteran Trevor Bryan earned him the lightly regarded WBA regular title.

While Dubois is officially recognized as the WBA's mandatory challenger, few are optimistic about his chances against Usyk, considering him more of a puncher than a match for one of the world's top-tier fighters.

Usyk vs. Dubois prediction, best bets

There's an undeniable gap in skill between these two fighters. It's clear that Dubois faces a formidable challenge in Usyk, who boasts superior technical prowess. The odds don't favor Dubois, and the real question is whether he can leverage his size and power to counter Usyk's technical superiority.

Not long ago, Usyk was widely regarded as the world's top fighter. He entered the pound-for-pound rankings as a cruiserweight world champion and solidified his greatness with two victories over Joshua. Dubois, on the other hand, lacks Joshua's experience and pedigree, putting him at a disadvantage in this bout. To compound matters, he's made a significant change by replacing trainer Shane McGuigan with Don Charles, which means he's adapting to a new coach in addition to preparing for this challenging matchup.

While Usyk hasn't secured a stoppage win since October 2019 when he defeated American heavyweight Chazz Witherspoon, it's unlikely that he'll need to go the distance against Dubois. Although he isn't celebrated as a knockout artist, Usyk lands enough punches to wear down his opponents mentally and physically.

Prediction

Usyk by TKO in the late rounds.
