    Good fight but I was hoping for Hrgovic to be AJs next opponent.

    The Saudis will probably attempt to give the loser of the Usyk vs Fury huge step aside money to make the winner vs AJ. However if they don't who does AJ fight next? Parker, Sanchez and Kayabel are good candidates.

    As for Hrgovic vs Dubois fight itself, I have Hrgovic as strong favourite although I wouldn't completely write off Dubois chances of causing a upset (Hrgovic has a good chin but has a habit of leaving it out and unprotected at times).

    Not sure whether he deserves credit for being the best manoeuvred fighter in the country. 0-2, both via stoppage against anyone world rated and walks straight into another big pay day. Warren has done as good a job for Dubois as he has for anybody in 40 years.

    Warren has done some job for Dubois and credit to Dubois as he’ll fight anyone.

    Frank Warren is a true master of maneuvering his boxers and putting them in position for big title fights.

    Indeed, did the same for Yarde.

    I'm backing DDD to cause an upset. Looked good against Miller, not that it was much of a test. Maybe he will have some good momentum/confidence going into this fight.

    Hope Dubois smashes the overrated Hrgovic so that we never get to hear his name again with regards to title contenders.

    Whilst Hrgovic is probably the better boxer he has a poor work rate and is also a slow starter so Dubois would have plenty of time to settle. Dubois has a good jab and I'd give him a good chance at outworking Hrgovic to a UD.

    I dont remember that. Was he in from start to finish? Don Charles trainer I think. But hell need any help he can get if he fights Hyrgovic. I hope this comes off, they're talking June aren't they?
    Make or break fight for Daniel at world level. Win and its a massive achievement lose and he drops down a level.

    Didn't need that encouragement against Miller but may in this one. Hyrgovic more accomplished. But Don is experienced and a good motivator. If senior helps get him in there.

    No mate. His dad was shouting instructions from a few rows back when Dubois looked a little lost after a few rounds and Warren said to someone go and get his dad and stick him in the corner. From then on he looked loads better with his dad giving him encouragement in between rounds.
