Zhilei: It will be difficult for Dubois to hit Usyk
Zhang Zhilei does not give Daniel Dubois (19-1, 18 KOs) special odds against Oleksandr Usyk (19-1, 18 KOs) in the fight for three heavyweight belts. The fight is scheduled for August 26 in Wroclaw, Poland.
“It will be too difficult for Dubois because Usyk is very fast. Dubois is strong, but he may have trouble delivering his punches,” the six-foot Chinese man, who himself would be happy to face the Ukrainian’s potential December opponent, said in an interview with Fighthype. Tyson Fury (33-01, 24 KOs).
“I would be a bigger threat to Fury than Wilder because Wilder usually relies on single punches and not combinations,” Zhang added.
The official announcement of the fight between Alexander Usyk and Daniel Dubois should take place in the near future. In early June, the manager of the Ukrainian Oleksandr Krasyuk said that this fight would almost certainly take place in Poland.
