Joshua Tipped To Knock Out Dubois In Two Rounds

Former WBC cruiserweight champion, Toney Bellew has predicted that the bout between Anthony Joshua and Daniel Dubois will be over inside two rounds.

The potential heavyweight fight is known to be in talks for September 21 at Wembley Stadium as part of the Riyadh Season Card being planned by Saudi boxing chiefs.

It’s not yet confirmed whether the fight will come to fruition, but former WBC world champ Bellew has already made a bold prediction.

When initially asked if Dubois possesses any attributes that could trouble Joshua, Bellew told Lucky Block Casino, “Of course, he can punch. But AJ’s technically better than him, more fluid than him, quicker than him, hits harder than him.

“Everything Dubois is good at, Joshua is a bit better at. And he also has a defence. Dubois is good at front-foot pressure, powerful, with reasonable speed for someone his size.

“AJ’s a freak. AJ’s the best athlete the heavyweight division’s probably ever had as an athletic specimen. If you put AJ in a 100m race (against the other heavyweights), lifting weights, how far he can jump, how high he can jump – I promise you he’d win the lot. It’s just getting all that package put into one.

“As for AJ vs Dubois, I think if that fight gets made it’s over inside two rounds. I think he won’t miss him. As long as Joshua goes in with the same attitude that he went in with against Francis Ngannou, it’s over in two rounds. I don’t see any other outcome.”

Joshua has rediscovered himself with four wins on the bounce, the most recent being his brutal second-round KO of former UFC heavyweight champion, Francis Ngannou.
