Dubois Launches His Appeal To The WBA To Overturn His Usyk Loss

Daniel Dubois has requested that the WBA reverse his defeat to Oleksandr Usyk and deem it a no-contest with an immediate rematch. 

The Brit missed out on the opportunity to become the unified heavyweight champion of the world after his body shot in the fifth round was declared a low blow. As a result, Usyk composed himself for over three minutes to then establish his dominance. He dropped Dubois in the eighth round and stopped the Brit a round later.

After the fight, Frank Warren made it clear that Dubois would be appealing the result. The boxing public, however, were divided over the nature of the low blow. Eddie Hearn was adamant that it was a low blow. Meanwhile, Paulie Malignaggi felt the shot was legal. Therefore, an appeal process should end the debate once and for all. 

“Daniel Dubois’ team sent a formal appeal for last August 26 fight, in which he lost by knockout in nine rounds against Oleksandr Usyk in Wroclaw, Poland. The WBA, now that it has received a formal appeal from Dubois’ team, will proceed with a review as per the regulations. Any decision made regarding this situation will be made under WBA rules and communicated in a timely and appropriate manner,” WBA
