One of the biggest fights on the June boxing calendar for this weekend is a WBC (Regular) heavyweight title fight between belt-holder Trevor Bryan and hard-hitting British prospect Daniel Dubois. Neither one of these guys will be giving unified world champion Oleksandr Usyk a run for his money at the top of the division any time soon, but this is still a fun matchup with plenty of power on both sides.
Dubois vs. Bryan Purse
Don King won the purse bid for this fight, with an offer of $3.1 million, which blew out the reported second-placed offer of $2.5 million from Queensberry Promotions — Dubois’ promoter. Bryan is entitled to 55% of the purse (roughly $1.7 million) while Dubois is set to earn 45% ($1.4 million).

Bryan may be the champ, but he’s far from the favorite. Bryan closed as a ridiculous -2875 favorite in his last fight, but this is a massive leap in competition compared to Jonathan Guidry. Dubois closed favored at absurd -5000 and -7000 odds in his last two fights, and while he’s getting a huge step up in competition as well, this isn’t projected to be a close one.
Daniel Dubois vs. Trevor Bryan Prediction
Sometimes it can seem like the odds get out of hand on a young prospect taking on a veteran champ, but that’s not the case here.
Bryan holds the belt, sure, but he hasn’t exactly been fighting tom competition for it. And his last win was only a split decision against an opponent who should have been clearly outclassed. Guidry was just 3-0 as a pro, with wins over opponents who now hold records of 20-21-2, 10-11-1, and 8-10-1. It’s hard to get excited about anyone who has a close fight with Guidry.
Dubois does have one loss to his name, but he hasn’t made a habit of being in close fights. Each of his last eight wins have been by KO/TKO, and he was in a very close fight (winning on some media scorecards) before taking a shot to his injured eye and losing to Joe Joyce.
Despite being eight years younger, the taller Dubois has nearly as much experience as Bryan already, and this should be a breakout moment for the young Englishman.
Bet Dubois to win (-950)
