- Dubois vs Tetteh goes Friday, September 27th, at 5:00 PM ET
- Can Dubois add another highlight-reel KO to his resume?

Daniel Dubois vs Ebenezer Tetteh pits one of today’s hottest heavyweight prospects against an enormous underdog. The event takes place at Royal Albert Hall in London, England, on Friday (Sep. 27th).
The vacant commonwealth heavyweight championship is up for grabs. Previous titlist Joe Joyce relinquished the belt, allowing these two hungry pugilists to lock horns for it. The twelve-round contest is one of two title bouts on the card and will be broadcast on BT Sport and ESPN+.
Dubois vs Tetteh Odds
*Odds taken 09/24/19.
Both heavyweights enter this contest with spotless records. The recent rate of activity between the two is worth noting though. This is Dubois’ fourth fight of 2019 while Tetteh hasn’t competed in this calendar year.
Dubois vs Tetteh Tale of the Tape
|Kevin Johnson, Răzvan Cojanu, and Nathan Gorman||Significant Wins||Boniface Kabore, Maxwell Amponsah, and Ibrahim Marshall|
Dubois has a 100-percent KO rate across all 2019 efforts while collecting British and European hardware.
Tetteh has captured some African, Ghanaian, and Pan-African titles. While he collected belts in three weight classes (light-heavyweight, cruiserweight, and heavyweight) from WBO and WBA, the bulk of his wins have come against opponents of dubious quality.
Triple D Captures Gold
Tetteh has almost a 90-percent KO rate in his own right. Again though, the knockouts have come against drastically different levels of competition compared to Dubois. Across 12 pro fights, Dubois has only had to fight 38 rounds.
The one time Dubois saw the judges’ scorecards was against Kevin Johnson, a veteran of over 40 pro fights. Dubois was in his ninth pro fight and still beat the former WBC heavyweight title challenger via thorough unanimous decision. He definitely does not get paid by the hour.

Frank Warren has described Dubois as the best young heavyweight in the world. Even with such high-profile people putting this kind of pressure on him, Dubois has continually lived up to expectations. Dubois has great finishing ability but is a tremendously technical boxer that knows how to use calculated ringcraft to make things happen. He knows his skillset and sees himself competing with the world’s best heavyweights someday soon.
For Tetteh, this is his first time fighting outside of his hometown Accra. The Ghanaian is stepping to Dubois’ turf for this tilt. Tetteh has been studying tape on his opponent and feels confident in his chances. He’s seen some instances of weakness with Dubois in prior fights and he thinks he can finish the talented young UK pugilist.
The 31-year-old has been competing for five years longer than his 22-year-old opponent. But no grizzled veteran tricks will be enough to pull out the win here. Dubois will fire up the hometown crowd and score another knockout. I see Dubois finishing Tetteh inside of six rounds.
Pick: Dubois (-10000)
