Dubois vs Bryan: UK start time, undercard, latest odds, fight prediction and ring walks

D

Daniel Dubois challenges Trevor Bryan for the WBA ‘regular’ heavyweight title in Miami on Saturday night.

The contest represents a significant opportunity for the Briton, who can set himself up for a potential future shot at the WBA ‘super’ belt currently held by Oleksandr Usyk.

The winner of Dubois-Bryan is scheduled to face the victor of Hughie Fury’s eliminator with Michael Hunter in Manchester on July 2, with the last man standing well placed to pursue an opportunity against either Usyk or Anthony Joshua, whose delayed rematch in Saudi Arabia is likely to take place in mid-August.

Dubois, the former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion, is fighting for the third time since his shock first professional defeat against domestic rival Joe Joyce in November 2020.

The 24-year-old returned with a low-key stoppage of Bogdan Dinu in Telford last summer, before also stopping Joe Cusumano in the first round of his US debut on the Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley undercard in Cleveland.

Undefeated American Bryan, meanwhile, has held the WBA’s regular belt since a late stoppage of the aging Bermane Stiverne last January, a fight set up after Mahmoud Charr was stripped of the title due to inactivity.

Promoted by the now 90-year-old Don King, ‘The Dream’ made his first defense of that secondary strap five months ago, earning a split-decision win over late replacement opponent Jonathan Guidry after Charr was again unable to obtain a visa.

King has called the show ‘The Fight for Freedom and Peace’, dedicated to the brave and courageous people of Ukraine.

Dubois vs Bryan fight prediction

This is a good chance for fearsome knockout artist Dubois that he won’t want to miss.

‘DDD’ has bounced back emphatically from that surprise loss to Joyce that threatened to derail such a promising career, albeit against two very straightforward opponents.

Bryan is undefeated and believes he does not get anywhere near the respect he feels he deserves as the holder of an – albeit very secondary – world heavyweight championship.

The 32-year-old is unbeaten, but the level of his previous opponents certainly leave a lot to be desired… to put it mildly.

We are backing Dubois to throw down the gauntlet to Hunter and Hughie Fury with an accomplished display and eye-catching stoppage in the middle rounds.

Dubois to win via knockout.
