Oleksandr Usyk returns to the ring to defend his multiple world heavyweight titles against British underdog Daniel Dubois.


The world waited expectantly for Usyk to face Tyson Fury in an undisputed contest earlier this year, but the fight was called off and mandatory challenger Dubois has received the opportunity of a lifetime.

Usyk boasts the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles following two polished victories over Anthony Joshua - and will put them all on the line against Dubois.

This is 25-year-old Dubois's first world title shot, and opportunities don't come much bigger than this one, with everything on the line.

Dubois's last fight saw him hit the canvas three times in the first round before defeating Kevin Lerena in the third at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on the undercard for Fury v Chisora in December 2022.
