IBF Declares Dubois Mandatory Challenger for Usyk’s Heavyweight Title

IBF Declares Dubois Mandatory Challenger for Usyk’s Heavyweight Title

The IBF has officially declared that Daniel Dubois is now mandatory for Oleksandr Usyk’s IBF heavyweight title following his impressive eighth-round TKO victory in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. With a record of 21-2, including 20 KOs, Dubois is set to challenge Usyk for the prestigious title.

Dubois has his sights set on a potential showdown with Anthony Joshua on September 21st at Wembley Stadium. While negotiations are ongoing for this highly anticipated fight, the IBF has yet to determine if the full title will be on the line for the Joshua-Dubois clash. There is a possibility that Usyk could retain his IBF title for a rematch with Tyson Fury later in December.

The prospect of an undisputed championship fight between Fury and Usyk has captured the attention of fans worldwide, with many viewing it as a more significant event than the Joshua-Dubois bout. Fury’s charismatic personality and global appeal make him a standout figure in the boxing world, adding an extra layer of intrigue to the potential rematch.

While some UK fans are eager to see Joshua and Dubois compete for the full IBF title in September, others are more interested in the undisputed clash between Fury and Usyk. Regardless of the outcome, the winner of the Joshua-Dubois fight will still have the opportunity to challenge for all four belts, making the interim IBF title sufficient for their upcoming bout.
