"He was exposed": what happened in the Usyk-Dubois fight. Video
Frank Warren, the promoter of the WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs), said that Daniel Dubois (19-2, 18 KOs) exposed WBA, WBO and IBF titlist Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs). The referee did not count a punch between Usyk's legs in the 5th round, giving our compatriot 5 minutes to recover.
Warren admitted that what happened in the 5th round confirmed his opinion about the weaknesses of the Ukrainian heavyweight.
"Tyson Fury is the best heavyweight in the world. Dubois exposed Usyk in their last fight. He showed what I suspected. Usyk has a vulnerability, which is his body. I saw it in previous fights and Daniel exposed it. I want to see the Fury-Usyk fight. If it happens, it's great," Vringe quotes Warren's interview for the Seconds Out YouTube channel.
It should be noted that the punch below the belt has caused a lot of discussions in the boxing world. For example, the former IBO super lightweight champion and now a reputable American trainer Jeff Mayweather hinted that the pain suffered by Usyk was allegedly faked.
At the same time, catman Russ Anber, who once worked with Oleksandr Usyk, came to the Sky Sports studio, where he analyzed this episode in the Ukrainian's fight, citing the undeniable facts of the foul play.
On September 22, Fury's manager Spencer Brown said that Tyson and Usyk's fight for the world heavyweight title to be officially announced before Christmas.
