Frank Warren has advised talkSPORT that he would make Oleksandr Usyk vs Daniel Dubois ‘in a heartbeat’ if the WBO order that battle early subsequent yr.
Ukraine’s former undisputed cruiserweight champion got here via his first actual check at heavyweight by beating Derek Chisora on Saturday night time.
When requested for his response, Warren advised Jim White on talkSPORT: “He did what he needed to do.
“He fought Derek Chisora and Derek at all times fights nicely sufficient to return second in large fights, that’s what he at all times does.
“It was a yardstick to take a look at, for me, so far as Usyk is worried.
“Usyk was an amazing cruiserweight, I simply don’t suppose he’s gonna do the enterprise on the high stage at heavyweight.
“He’s not sufficiently big and I believe to myself, ‘What would’ve occurred if he’d been in there with Tyson Fury or Anthony Joshua?’
“I’d’ve put Daniel Dubois in with him ages in the past.”
As he earned WBO ‘tremendous’ champion standing at cruiserweight, Usyk routinely turned Joshua’s heavyweight obligatory challenger final yr.
Nonetheless, it seems as if the belt may turn into vacant if AJ as a substitute chooses to face Tyson Fury in early 2021.
Warren defined: “Daniel is ranked quantity two by the WBO now, Usyk is the [WBO] obligatory challenger to Anthony Joshua and Anthony is speaking about vacating the title, relatively than combating Usyk.
“I don’t know if he’s gonna try this, but when he does then meaning Daniel will battle Usyk, offering he beats Joe Joyce on November 28.
“If that battle’s there, I’d try this in a heartbeat.”
