The sportsbooks have got Daniel Dubois unanimously pegged to beat Joe Joyce on November 28 and add the vacant European heavyweight title to his British and Commonwealth belts.
The 23-year-old is one of the biggest prospects on the heavyweight circuit—evidenced by his -400 odds to win with William Hill New Jersey—but 2016 Olympics silver medallist Joyce remains unbeaten to date.
Fireworks are guaranteed in a bout that’s been a long time in the making, and Dubois (also unbeaten) confidently predicted a 15th career knockout in his 16th fight when the pair clashed back in February:
Two knockout artists may be expected to produce an early finish, but both Dubois and Joyce have fought to the final bells in their pro careers—and it’s obvious neither has been KO’d as of yet.
Dubois is eight years Joyce’s junior and looks the superior talent, but William Hill‘s +400 price that he’ll win via decision appeal more in what’s likely to be his toughest test to date.
