In 14 pro fights, Dubois’ main target has been acquiring as many domestic and regional titles before moving up and facing top tier competition, having won the English, British, WBO Global, WBO European and WBC Silver heavyweight titles, among others.
In 2019 alone, Dubois won all five of his fights in five rounds or less, most recently coming off a second-round knockout win over Japanese fighter, Kyotaro Fujimoto. Dubois is currently ranked No. 3 by the WBO and No. 11 by the WBC.
Joyce has been able to emerge as one of the heavyweight division’s fastest-rising prospects, already reaching a top 15 ranking by the WBO and WBC after just 10 pro fights. Joyce captured the WBA Gold title back in February 2019 with a sixth-round stoppage win over former WBC heavyweight champion Bermane Stiverne. Since then, Joyce picked up wins over Alexander Ustinov and Bryant Jennings.
