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.
