Fighter history

Usyk is a former 2012 gold medalist, representing Ukraine before he went on to dominate the cruiserweight division, reaching undisputed status in 2018. He has gone 2-0 against Anthony Joshua, defeating him in 2021 and 2022, to gain status as unified heavyweight champion. The 36-year-old southpaw is certainly an established fighter in the division as talks of a mega fight between him and current WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury did not pan out.

Dubois has held multiple British titles and previously was the WBO heavyweight champion prior to a 2020 loss to Joe Joyce. He has won 18 of 19 by knockout and enters this bout winning his last four. The 25-year-old has electric hands and looks to shake up the heavyweight division with a potential upset.

Fight odds

Usyk is favored to win the fight per DraftKings Sportsbook with odds of -1000, as Dubois is a +900 underdog. The favored method of victory is a Usyk knockout (-200).
