Dubois Looking To Continue Unbeaten Record
Daniel Dubois has been in excellent form since turning professional in 2017, and he is already regarded as the next best thing in the boxing heavyweight division. Tyson Fury has echoed those beliefs, as he has already revealed that his compatriot will become the heavyweight champion of the world at some point during his career. That day could come sooner rather than later if Dubois is successful in this weekend’s fight, as it could set up a blockbuster bout with Anthony Joshua in 2021.
Fans will be most taken aback by the striking power that Dubois boasts, as he is renowned for his knockout percentage. Dubois has won 92.9% of his fights by this method, as he has effortlessly transformed from a bright amateur prospect to a bonafide star in the making. The only decision victory that he has achieved came against Kevin Johnson in 2018, but since then, he has knocked out all six recent challengers. Dubois is the reigning WBO International Heavyweight champion, and he will be looking to add the European Heavyweight title to his collection this weekend.
Joyce Eying Fight With Sparring Partner
Joe Joyce enjoyed an excellent career as an amateur before turning professional. He won gold medals at the European Games and Commonwealth Games, and won a silver at the 2016 Olympic Games. He turned professional in 2017, and his record is very similar to the record that has been recorded by Dubois, which makes this such a tantalising fight in question.
Joyce has won ten of his eleven professional fights by knockout, with his only other win coming by decision in 2019 against Bryant Jennings. That success saw him keep hold of the WBA (Gold) Heavyweight title, and he successfully defended that belt in his most recent defence against Michael Wallisch. He knocked out his Germany opponent in the third round. That has been a prominent knockout round for Joyce, as he has knocked out his opponent in the third round in two of his last three fights.
Daniel Dubois vs Joe Joyce Picks
This will be a huge night for both of these fighters, with the winner likely to have a world title shot next year. It is a difficult fight to call, as both fighters will be coming up against the toughest opponent to date this weekend. However, the slight preference is for Daniel Dubois, who already looks to be a star in the making.
