Usyk vs Dubois card: Who else is fighting this weekend?

Daniel Dubois challenges Oleksandr Usyk for the unified heavyweight titles this weekend, as the Briton ventures to Poland for his toughest test yet.

Dubois, 25, has secured 18 of his 19 victories via knockout, and he will lean on that destructive power in Wroclaw, where Usyk and a legion of Ukrainian fans await. “Dynamite” Daniel has also shown vulnerability, however; he suffered a fractured eye socket in a TKO loss to Joe Joyce in 2020, and he hit the canvas three times in his most recent win – against Kevin Lerena – partly due to a knee injury.

Meanwhile, Usyk is unbeaten, an Olympic gold medalist, and the only undisputed cruiserweight champion of the four-belt era. The southpaw, 36, is still seeking a fight with WBC champion Tyson Fury, whom he was due to face before talks fell through in spring. As such, Usyk was left to take on mandatory challenger Dubois, who will look to succeed where all others have failed – including Anthony Joshua, who dropped the unified titles to Usyk in 2021 and lost to the Ukrainian again in August.
