Joshua vs. Dubois Confirmed For September 21

 Anthony Joshua will face IBF Heavyweight Champion Daniel Dubois on September 21. 

Eddie Hearn made the announcement shortly after Oleksandr Usyk vacated the IBF belt following his Undisputed Heavyweight Title win over Tyson Fury. Dubois became the full champion since he was the interim title holder. The decision meant that Fury could no longer fight for undisputed in their rematch on December 21. 

Joshua has been in impressive form since teaming up with Ben Davidson. In his last two fights, he has stopped Otto Wallin and Francis Ngannou. Dubois is also in good form, having stopped Jarrell Miller and Filip Hrgovic. Now, Hearn has confirmed the huge domestic clash. 

“We know that prior to the 5 vs 5 that the Hrgovic fight was an option, and I always said if this fight can be for the world heavyweight title then we’ll fight Daniel Dubois. AJ will fight anybody. Now you got two Brits, the world heavyweight title, 100,000 people, Riyadh Season card, the undercard off the charts. September 21st, massive, massive day and night for British boxing,” Hearn said

Should Joshua win, he will be in line to face the winner of Fury-Usyk. The Brit FaceTimed Fury, as they agreed to fight next year regardless of their results.

Saudi representative: “Champ [Fury], finish the job on 21 of December of 21. We are waiting for you.”

Joshua: “I’m waiting for you. I’m waiting for you.”

Tyson Fury: “Good. I’ll get the job done [against Oleksandr Usyk].”

Joshua: “No, you won’t. Either way, I’m waiting for you.”

Fury: “I’ll get the job done.”

Joshua: “Either way.” 

Saudi representative: “Either way, he’s waiting for you.”
