    The Post-Fury, Post-Wilder, Post-Joshua heavyweight era is approaching ...

    How does it look?

    Dubois is saying all the right words ... but I don't know if he'd pass a lie detector. ;)

    Dubois is saying the type of thing that any challenger would say, fact is the actions in the squared circle, not words uttered prefight are what folk will remember in boxing history, "Actions speak louder than words"

    I mean he probably will. If the Fury fight isn’t next then Usyk may as well deal with one of his mandatories.

    In terms of risk/reward ratio, Dubois is Usyk’s best option. Hrgovic (IBF mandatory) is higher risk, lower reward. Joyce (WBO mandatory and interim champ) is albeit higher reward but also FAR, FAR higher risk.

    Plus the WBA is first in line anyway.

    Usyk vs Dubois is next at the Copper Box Arena.

    The amount of times people have used the phrase "Shock the world" Makes me think it's the in-crowds signal for who you should bet on or something.

    When you get an opportunity like this, you have to be aware that you have to be maximally prepared and leave a good impression in the ring, and Dubois is not ready for such a challenge...

    I sincerely hope this young brother can pull off the upset and bring respect back to the HW division.

    Would love to see Dubois vs Wilder down the road

    Dubois doesn't have an ounce of charisma. He's also a pretty bad liar, he seems like he's trying to convince himself. As delusional as Wilder is, if he told me he thinks he will destroy Tyson Fury in a 4th fight, I would believe that he actually thinks that.

    Ever since Frank Bruno predicted Dubois to be a future 'unstoppable force', Daniel has nose dived.
    Unfortunately Dubois isn't all that good, and neither was Bruno.

    Perhaps Dubois should try some theatre work.
