World Heavyweight Title: Daniel Dubois is getting ready to take fight either Oleksandr Usyk or Tyson Fury, the current world heavyweight champion.
The young man from London is wearing a WBA belt. That title is unimportant compared to Oleksandr Usyk’s WBA heavyweight championship, which he also holds along with the IBF and WBO belts.
However, it places Dubois in a strong position inside the division and puts him in a position to face Usyk for the WBA title.
According to Dubois’ trainer Shane McGuigan, “He’s the WBA’regular’ champion. People might discount it, we boxed Trevor Bryan for it. [But Dubois] still has a version of a world title that puts him in line to be in a powerful position. He’s extremely, highly ranked with the WBA.”
According to Dubois’ camp, he will be the first person called as Usyk’s required challenger.
“Next in line, we get that opportunity. Usyk holds the IBF, WBO, and WBA belts, while Fury holds the WBC, hence Usyk holds all the other belts. Daniel is first in line for the WBA to get the shot, followed by the IBF, WBA, and WBO “McGuigan elucidated.
Due to this, Dubois will face Kevin Lerena, a southpaw, in his subsequent match. “That preparation is necessary. To be able to do that, he needs to prepare “The instructor kept going.
“Kevin Lerena, who has moved up from cruiserweight and is a decent mover with good head movement, is a dangerous opponent for him. He doesn’t move around on his feet like Usyk, but he can move his head and shrink himself, making him difficult to hit cleanly. This is a useful test for us.
“We must overcome this and assess how he performs against a southpaw.”
In 2020, Dubois was defeated by Joe Joyce, a rival from London, but he has since recovered. McGuigan would be willing to group him with Usyk at this time.
“Not at all; you must seize the possibilities that are offered to you. We’ve been collaborating for more than a year—more precisely, a year and a half. He’s improving a great deal. He has not yet had an opportunity to demonstrate it “said McGuigan.
“He defeated Bogdan Dinu and [Joe] Cusumano in America before defeating Trevor Bryan without a doubt. On that fight week, he actually had sickness and illness, but we still went through with it. We simply assumed he would complete the task.”
