  • Good for K2! That’s a huge number but if they take it to Poland, it’s probably about as close to a hometown fight for Usyk as they can get and he’ll probably have an arena or a stadium full of fans… he won’t need it, but it’ll be nice.

    • In my comment I said the same……Dubois is another “fast tracked up the rankings” heavyweight,like Joyce and co will realise what level they have to reach

      • I disagree about Joyce, he beat credible opposition including Parker for the interim belt, he relies on his durability but the eye was too damaged no different than Vitali losing to Lewis. Let’s not forget in the eyes of most except the judges Zhang beat Hrgovic, no shame in Joyce losing to strong, crafty opponent who should have been the IBF mandatory at that. Dubois is too hittable and raw though.

  • Usyk should win that one. I dont know what/how Dubois will feel with his promoter for not bidding a realistic amount nor winning the fight promotion…

  • Usyk made close to 5 million or a little more for the first AJ fight, and then a little more than 75 million for the rematch. He’ll probably take a little more than 7 million for this fight and then hopefully we get the big one against Tyson Fury.

    • Never gonna happen ,Fury will not fight Usyk because he cannot win and he knows it.

  • Oleksandr will give young Daniel a thorough boxing lesson and I wouldn’t be surprised if the bout didn’t go the distance.

    • Yet promoters keep paying for these worthless titles-could make a lot more by just ignoring these organizations and making fights people want to see.

  • Uysk will KO Dubois I feel ,everything about Usyk is lightyears beyond Dubois.
