‘The Fight Before Christmas’ between Daniel Dubios and Kyotaro Fujimoto is around the corner. It will take place at the Copper Box Arena in London on December 21. Daniel Dubois vs Kyotaro Fujimoto odds suggest Dubois will likely add the fifth KO to his 2019 tally.
The two heavyweights are about to square off for the WBO International title and the WBC Silver title as online sportsbook news in the UK reported. According to Daniel Dubois vs Kyotaro Fujimoto odds, Dubois looks like the real deal. He values 1/100 to win the fight and 1/25 to get the knockout at Unibet Sportsbook. The only question remains at what round he will put Fujimoto to sleep.
However, Fujimoto should not be overlooked. He has a good experience and a strong physical appearance. He also seems to be trying his best to get under Dubois’s skin by calling him a bear. His odds stand at 16/1 to win. Yet, his age and record against unproven fighters will probably play against him in London.
Dubois holds many advantages over Fujimoto
Daniel “Dynamite” Dubois is coming off 13th win, with 12th KO, finishing previously undefeated Ghanaian Ebenezer Tetteh in the first round. Although he is only 22, he already collected eight belts, and he will be defending his WBO International title against Fujimoto. He also is among the top 15 of the WBC rankings, 9 with WBO, and 15 with the IBF.
It is not only about Dubois’s record that makes him the A fighter at online sportsbooks in the UK, but also his physical and technical advantages. Dubois has height and reach advantages over Fujimoto. He is 11 years younger. What is more, he holds a record of 92% KOs, while Fujimoto stands at only 62%. All of that shows Dubois will celebrate Christmas with a fifth KO in 2019.
Fujimoto fought only in Japan against unproven fighters
The current WBO Asia Pacific champion, 33, holds a strong record of 21-1, with 13 wins coming via KO. He won the WBO Asia Pacific title by stopping Herman Ene Purcell in 2017. Later on, he defended the belt three times, winning all by stoppage. Fujimoto lost once in his pro career in 2012 but successfully bounced back with 16 wins in a row.
His experience is a great weapon against Dubois who spent only two years in pro fights. However, all Fujimoto’s fights have been in Japan against unproven fighters and this fight will be his first in London. Therefore, Daniel Dubois vs Kyotaro Fujimoto odds suggest he has a very slim chance to win.
