Dubois stated this in an interview with the YouTube channel Boxing Social. The British boxer emphasized that Usyk's support from Ukrainian and Polish fans will only further motivate him, as well as force him to be as focused as possible in the ring.
"He's a heavyweight fighter, the fights with Chisora and Joshua have shown he has weaknesses too. I'm being written up as a loser, but I'm going to come out and close the show with one punch. Screw the public, the fans won't fight for us, so I don't care about cheering for my opponent. The most important thing is that I stay focused. I've done a great job, I've had good sparring partners, so it's time to fight. Usyk moves perfectly in the ring, so I have to show character, youth, physical advantage", - said the challenger.
