Daniel Dubois’ Trainer Confident They Will Be The First To Drop Oleksandr Usyk
Don Charles the trainer of Daniel Dubois has tons of confidence that his pupil will drop Oleksandr Usyk.
In Usyk’s career, he has never been dropped and has been one of the best boxers of all time. With that, heading into Saturday’s fight, he is a sizeable betting favorite to beat Daniel Dubois. But, Charles has full confidence in Dubois as they believe Usyk is very beatable and there to be hit.
“We’re fighting a man who is very good, but very beatable,” Charles told The Daily Mail. ‘I’m still finding things about this young man [Dubois]. He can have a ruck – I didn’t know that. He was sparring Moses Itauma, a very highly-rated fighter. They were having it off in sparring and that’s when I saw another side of Daniel that I didn’t know. There is a dog in Daniel Dubois and if he has to dog it, he can. When Moses came, he brought the dog out of Daniel. I thought, “Oh my god”. Me and my colleagues all looked at each other – we didn’t know he had that.
“The only chance we’ve been given is that Daniel is a puncher and we’ve got a punchers chance. Do you what? We’ll take that,” Charles said. “If it’s documented that Usyk has never been dropped, we’re going to be the first to do it. [Dubois] will go down in history forever and he’s about to do that. We keep reminding him about that. Muhammad Ali shook the world when he beat Sonny Liston. He repeated it again against Forman, who was untouchable at the time. It’s about to happen again. We are up for it man. Usyk said he was hungry for this fight. We are starving.”
Daniel Dubois enters the fight coming off a TKO win over Kevin Lerena and is on a four-fight win streak.
