    Usyk vs Dubois Fight Set for August in Poland After Winning Purse Bid

    The Puzzling Future of Oleksandr Usyk and Daniel Dubois

    In a shocking turn of events, Ukrainian boxer Oleksandr Usyk’s team recently won the purse bids for a world heavyweight title defence against British challenger Daniel Dubois. The fight is set to take place in Wroclaw, Poland on August 12th.

    Usyk will be putting his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight belts on the line against Dubois, who is the mandatory challenger for the WBA title. This bout comes after Usyk’s stunning victory over Anthony Joshua last August where he retained his unified status as champion.

    Initially set to face Tyson Fury in an undisputed showdown at Wembley Stadium this April, negotiations between both parties faltered leaving boxing fans puzzled about what could have been.

    The Unpredictable Course of Boxing

    This outcome was unexpected but demonstrates that anything can happen in boxing. Just like how Usyk’s win over Joshua shattered predictions from many experts.

    Dubois too has seen an unpredictable course with various ups and downs throughout his career. After suffering his first professional loss to Joe Joyce in November 2020, he has since worked hard to regain contention with four consecutive stoppage wins under his belt earning him a record of (19-1) (18).

    Making headlines yet again by getting rid of trainer Shane McGuigan and hiring Don Charles as coach instead shows that Dubois’ future remains uncertain – maybe even more so now than before given these recent developments.

    A Potential Meeting Between Heavyweights?

    Krassyuk hasn’t ruled out a potential meeting between Fury and Usyk later this year when they faced each other next time. As a result, fans are experiencing discontinuity wondering about the potential outcome of that match if it ever takes place.

    As boxing fans brace themselves for yet another exciting match, only time will tell what happens next in this puzzling and unpredictable world of heavyweight boxing.
