Oleksandr Usyk Vs. Daniel Dubois Pre-Fight Press Conference

Oleksandr Usyk and Daniel Dubois had their second pre-fight presser, from London, ahead of their fight on August 26th, 2023 from Wroclaw, Poland.

Usyk will put his WBA, WBO and IBF titles on the line against Dubois, who is the WBA mandatory.

The Ukrainian was ordered to face his mandatory after talks over an undisputed fight with Tyson Fury broke down.

Dubois is the underdog and arrives into the fight with some question marks over his form. Although he stopped Kevin Lerena in his last fight, the Brit hit the canvas three times.

And as part of that process, Dubois injured his knee. The challenger will need to be at his best if he is to overcome the undefeated Usyk.

The unified champion was in great spirits, as he rapped and even had the time to recite a poem in spite of his nation’s struggles with the Russian conflict.

With that being said, here were the key quotes.

Key Quotes

“I think really highly of my opponent and he’s a nice man, a nice guy and a nice athlete…All the respect to him,” Usyk

“We are ready to rumble. This is it. Bring those titles back home, bring those belts. The belts are coming with me. It’s my time,” Dubois

“He’s probably the best cruiserweight of this century…but this is a test for [Usyk]. Daniel is not a guy on the way down. I genuinely believe my man will win,” Frank Warren
