Heavyweight Rival Slams Usyk's Stoppage of Dubois as 'Bum' Move in World Title Clash

A fellow heavyweight boxer has expressed his disbelief regarding Daniel Dubois’ ninth-round stoppage by Oleksandr Usyk due to a jab, referring to Usyk as a “bum.” This event unfolded in Poland in August during their unified heavyweight world title fight, which took place at Wroclaw Stadium. The bout generated significant discussion, particularly centering around two key incidents.

One of these incidents was a fifth-round low blow that caused Usyk to hit the canvas. Referee Luis Pabon deemed the shot as low and granted Usyk over three minutes to recover. This decision has sparked considerable debate and diverse opinions within the boxing community.

Additionally, questions arose regarding whether Dubois chose to quit in what was undoubtedly the most significant fight of his career up to that point. The incident transpired at the Tarczynski Arena, marking a critical moment in the fight.

Dubois’ promoter, Frank Warren, took official steps by lodging an appeal with the WBA, specifically concerning the low blow incident. Warren’s aim was to potentially secure a rematch or have Dubois reinstated as the mandatory challenger for the title.

Regrettably, neither of these desired outcomes has materialized, leaving the young Londoner with the challenge of embarking on another rebuilding phase as he aspires to once again contend for a world championship in the future. This development signifies a significant chapter in the ongoing narrative of the heavyweight boxing division.
