Preference for Fury vs. Usyk

He praised Usyk’s unbeaten record and expressed a belief that Dubois wouldn’t present a competitive challenge to the WBC heavyweight champion, Fury. Jones Jr made his stance unequivocal, stating,

“We don’t wanna see Dubois fight Fury; we know Fury gonna kill the boy.”

Controversy Surrounding Usyk vs. Dubois

While Jones Jr favors the Fury vs. Usyk matchup, it’s worth noting that the Usyk vs. Dubois fight had its share of controversy. In the fifth round, Dubois attempted a body shot that sent Usyk to the canvas, but the referee ruled it a low blow.

Dubois later claimed he was “cheated” out of a world champion title and his promoter, Frank Warren, submitted an appeal to have the fight declared a “no contest” and to secure a rematch.

Jones Jr, however, attributed the controversy to the referee’s call and the nature of boxing itself. He acknowledged that the shot might have been borderline and that referees have the discretion to make such calls. In his view, it’s a standard part of the sport. Jones Jr noted that both fighters had their trunks positioned higher than they should have, contributing to the referee’s decision.

In the world of heavyweight boxing, where anticipation and debate run high, Roy Jones Jr’s insights provide a unique perspective on the matchups that fans eagerly discuss.
