    Oleksandr Usyk Recent Boxing Form

    Oleksandr Usyk enters this clash having only fought twice in the past two years. However, these fights have been about as good as it gets in heavyweight boxing – defeating Anthony Joshua by decision to win all his belts in 2021, then going out and doing it all over again in the mandatory rematch a year later to defend his heavyweight titles.

    Usyk Advantages Over Dubois

    Power, speed, skill, experience – you might already have guessed by looking at the bookies’ odds, but this is a mismatch. Usyk is the better boxer in almost every regard and should have no issue pressing advantage over Dubois on multiple fronts this Saturday.

    Daniel Dubois Current Boxing Form

    It’s been three years now since Daniel Dubois suffered his one and only professional loss. Since then, the Brit has won four on the bounce, and in emphatic style at that – four knockouts, all within the first four rounds. However, there’s no denying that Dubois has been fighting down a level.

    Dubois Advantages Over Usyk

    Two-inch reach advantage and having absolutely nothing to lose. Other than that, the Brit is pushing it. Sure, he packs a punch and knows how to put an opponent on the mat gazing at the stars, but to say that he has a power advantage over Usyk would be a bold and erroneous statement. There is something to be said about Dubois having zero expectations on his shoulders, however.

    Best Oleksandr Usyk vs Daniel Dubois Predictions

    It’s time for our Usyk vs Dubois latest predictions. Based on the latest boxing odds, here are the three wagers we see being the most fruitful this weekend:

    Oleksandr Usyk to Win by Knockout @ 1.44 (4/9)

    Let’s call it like it is – Usyk is just going through the motions here to satisfy the various governing bodies surrounding his heavyweight belts. He’s got to get back in the ring against a challenger, but this one is an absolute lay-up. Usyk has defeated the best boxers in the world, while the only time Dubois fought a fighter of any caliber (Joe Joyce), he wound up getting his eye almost knocked out of its socket.

    This is hardly a bold prediction, however, a 1.44 return is a 1.44 return, so take the easy money.

    Under 4.5 Rounds @ 3.40 (12/5)

    Despite this being a mismatch, there’s also the reality that Usyk hasn’t fought in a year. He’ll head into this one supremely confident of his ability to win, and it’s unlikely he’ll be in a hurry to force a result.

    Giving Usyk the first four rounds to find his rhythm is fair, with the Ukrainian identifying the holes in Dubois’ defense and taking a cautious approach. However, expecting this fight to last much longer begins to feel quite unreasonable. While there’s a chance Dubois hangs on until rounds 6-8, the odds of this ending in less than 4.5 are too strong to turn up.

    High-Odds Tip for Dubois vs Usyk Boxing Fight

    Dubois to Win by Knockout @ 11.00 (10/1)

    This is very unlikely. However, it is heavyweight boxing. Anyone can beat anyone, all it takes is one punch – just ask Andy Ruiz Jr and Anthony Joshua. Combine the fact that Usyk has been out of the ring for a year plus the fact that Dubois has nothing to lose and is on a hot four knockout streak, and there’s a world where this bet pays off. The Brit could come out swinging, while Usyk comes out sleepy, and the impossible could happen.

    It’s a long shot, but throw a tenner at it, and you’ll be drinking for free all night if it pays off.

    This Saturday night brings a somewhat exciting boxing bout in Wroclaw, Poland. The exciting part is Oleksandr Usyk defending his heavyweight titles and is on the probable way to the clash against Tyson Fury. The not-so-exciting part is a one-sided bout that will likely unfold. However, there’s great betting to be had still, with your choice of a 1.44 (4/9), 3.40 (12/5), or 11.00 (10/1) return, depending on the risk level you’re after this weekend.
