The two fighters will square off from the ‘Arena Wroclaw,’ Wroclaw, Poland, as Usyk puts his WBA, WBO and IBF titles on the line against Dubois, seeking his first world title.
Victory for Usyk will keep his hopes of being an undisputed champion alive at a time when a fight with Tyson Fury appears some way off.

In contrast, Dubois has an opportunity to upset the apple cart and disrupt those plans for an undisputed bout if he can pull off a shock victory.
But if things go ahead as planned, with Usyk coming out victorious, the attention will naturally turn towards the fight with Fury.
The latter faces Francis Ngannou on October 28th, 2023, from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in a ten-round boxing match.
And provided both fights see Usyk and Fury emerge victorious, boxing fans may finally have the chance to see the first undisputed champion since 1999.
