Dubois v Joyce preview

Quite comfortably the most highly-anticipated domestic fight of the year as the unbeaten Daniel Dubois takes on the unbeaten Joe Joyce at Church House in Westminster for the WBC Silver Heavyweight, EBU European Heavyweight, Commonwealth Heavyweight & the British Heavyweight titles.

Read the Dubois v Joyce odds and preview here and we'll be breaking the fight down for both fighters and giving our prediction on how we see the fight going.

Daniel Dubois Odds: How Dubois Wins The Fight?

Daniel Dubois is perhaps the biggest prospect in the heavyweight division after he turned pro at the age of just 19 with a fairly successful amateur career as a youth. However, the lack of senior amateur experience hasn't stopped him from having a perfect start to his career.

Out of his 15 professional fights to date, the Brit has won all 15, with 14 of those victories coming by stoppage. The only man to take Dubois the distance was the notoriously tough Kevin Johnson, who lasted all 10 rounds against the youngster, back in October of 2018 - Dubois was just 21 years old at the time.

Over his 15 fights to date, 'Dynamite' has started to build up a reputation for being one of the biggest and most ferocious punchers in the heavyweight division, which is frightening considering he's only really just starting to develop his physical attributes, and in heavyweight boxing terms, he's still a baby.

So how does he beat his fellow countryman? The simple and easy answer is obvious: by knocking him out, as many people believe he will do. However, this is heavyweight boxing and it's rarely ever that straight forward, especially when two men step in with so much emotional fuel on an already blazing hot relationship between the two.

Joyce, however, is known for his granite chin. The 35-year-old has been hit flush on the chin by big punchers as an amateur and as a professional, and it's not fazed him one bit. The one vulnerability he has shown, though, is to the body. In fact, Bryant Jennings, who isn't necessarily known for his punch power, hurt Joyce with a single body shot when the pair clashed last year. If Dubois can work off his excellent jab and find a home for the left hook to the body, that could be his money shot.

Dubois's main shot to win the fight, however, will be his jab. The 23-year-old has got one of the best jabs in boxing and with a reach of nearly 80 inches, it's hard to get inside against the 6ft 4 heavyweight. Joyce, on the other hand, is likely to come forward and apply the pressure to the younger man but if he can ram that jab into Joyce's head and body on the way in, it will be a very difficult night for the man who is 13 years older.

One thing that Joyce does do well which could play into Dubois' hands is his own jab to the body. It's one of his go-to shots and he usually uses it to back his opponents up onto the ropes. However, when he does this, he leaves himself wide open for a short right hand and carrying the one-punch power that Dubois does, expect him to try and set traps so he can unleash that on Joyce.

Dubois is priced at 1/2 to win by TKO/KO or disqualification - click the link here to claim.

How Joyce Wins The Fight

A highly decorated amateur, Joyce won silver in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in a fight that many believe he won against the Frenchman, Tony Yoka.

Joyce has had notable victories over the likes of Filip Hrgovic and Mahammadrasul Majidov as an amateur along with Yoka and that experience has seen him start off in the pro ranks in fine fettle with 11 wins and 10 stoppages coming from his first 11 fights.

Known for his engine and relentless pace, he's only heard the final bell when claiming a convincing points victory over Bryant Jennings in July of last year but he does have notable stoppage wins over Bermaine Stiverne, who once took Deontay Wilder 12 rounds.

A big outsider in this fight according to the bookies, he's going to have to put in a career-best performance to get the better of Dubois, but just how will he do that?

Well, to start with, he needs to box to his own strengths and make the most of his bigger and better amateur background.

As previously mentioned, Joyce's style as a pro so far has been to come forward and apply pressure on to his opponents. So far that has worked a treat for him but if he is to do that against Dubois, he's going to put himself in danger of getting picked off with Dubois's jab and getting seriously hurt. No doubt, he is going to need to mentally beat Dubois more than physically.

Getting on the back foot, using his superior footwork and trying to faint his way inside Dubois's jab to land clean shots, is what it's going to take the 35-year-old. 'The Juggernauts' punch accuracy and timing are two of his best traits and he needs to use that to his advantage.

However, Joyce does not have the one-punch power that Dubois carries, but he does have the accumulative power. If he has success to Dubois' head and body early on and makes him miss with a lot of his power shots, it'll frustrate Dubois and that youthful exuberance he carries could end up being his downfall against the much more experienced Joyce.

In all, Joyce needs to make this fight boring. He understandably wants to put on a show, but if he's going to do that, he'll leave himself wide open for one of Dubois' big power shots and as we've seen no matter how good his chin is, those power shots have the potential to put anyone to sleep.

Joyce to win via points is perhaps his best angle to victory, for which he is priced at 6/1.

Dubois v Joyce Prediction

A vast majority of fans believe that if the fight goes past six rounds then it will play into Joyce's favour. That could be the case, but we wouldn't be surprised if that eventually works into Dubois' favour.

It's unlikely that the pair will head straight to the centre of the ring and go toe to toe to have an absolute slugfest. They will both start slow, they will both try to establish their jabs and wait for openings to let their hands go to make the other fighter respect their power.

A trait of Dubois's that is massively underrated is his boxing skill in general. It's underrated because he's never had to actually call upon it because he's blasted his opponents out of there pretty quick, bar one fight in his pro career.

We expect Dubois to win the battle of the jabs early on and then over the first three or four rounds slowly bring the right hand into the equation more and more. These two have sparred plenty before so Dubois will know how good Joyce's chin is so he'll know in this fight unlike the others, he'll have to be patient and busy.

Once he's established that jab and got that right hand going to body and head, he'll slow Joyce down gradually and we believe it will get too much for Joyce to handle. We're backing Dubois to get him out of there in the mid to late rounds with either a heavy body shot or a counter right hand/right cross, as Joyce tries to empty the tank for one last big effort.
