Both fighters have solid pedigree with the British amateur set-up, with Joyce claiming a silver medal in Rio in 2016, while Dubois opted against challenging for a place at Tokyo.
There is plenty of risk here, and that outweighs the reward in the eyes of many, which has drawn a great deal of credit for both fighters, particularly with the fight not on pay-per-view.
Frank Warren is promoting this fight and has maintained Dubois is set for the very top and will one day challenge Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury and the other contenders at the top of the division. Victory for either fighter here will catapult them into the top 10 in most fans’ eyes in a division heating up heading into 2021 with Fury and Joshua likely to battle it out for the title of undisputed heavyweight champion of the world at some point.
