Thank you and good night

That's all from us tonight folks, as Oleksandr Usyk defends his unified heavyweight titles in controversial circumstances against Daniel Dubois in Wroclaw, Poland.

The outcome of this bout is set to be talked about for years to come following the contentious decision from the referee to declare a shot from Dubois in the fifth round as a low blow with Usyk badly hurt.

The Dubois camp are angry tonight, but the Londoner can take confidence from his ability to trouble the great champion Usyk moving forward.

Thank you and good night.

So there we have it...

Oleksandr Usyk successfully defends his WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight titles after stopping Daniel Dubois in the ninth round in front of a crowd packed full of Ukrainians in Wroclaw.

The victory comes not without controversy, however, with Usyk hurt badly by a contentious shot which was ruled as a low blow by the referee.

Replays of the shot from Dubois show it may well have been legal, and therefore the Brit perhaps should have been declared the winner by way of Knockout.

Debate is likely to rage on following this moment, but it is Usyk who has had his hand raised and retains his titles.

Britain's Daniel Dubois can take plenty plaudits from his performance, with the 25-year-old giving the undefeated Usyk a far tougher fight than most anticipated.

With youth on his side, Dubois demonstrated that he is a fighter not to be sneered at within the heavyweight division.

Oleksandr Usyk wins by Knockout!

Oleksandr Usyk gets the knockout in the ninth!

The Ukrainian retains his unified heavyweight titles after Dubois failed to beat the count following a hard right hand.

Dubois didn't seem to have recovered fully after being dropped at the end of the eighth, and Usyk seized the moment to get his opponent out of there.

Oleksandr Usyk v Daniel Dubois (Round Eight)

After enjoying a positive round, perhaps even nicking it, Dubois hits the canvas after a bruising flurry of punches from Usyk.

That's what the Ukrainian has been looking for in the last few rounds, something to push Dubois back, and the Brit was saved by the bell there.

There could be a Usyk onslaught in store in the ninth.

Bet on Usyk v Dubois

Oleksandr Usyk v Daniel Dubois (Round Seven)

The undefeated champion is having to dig deep in there as Dubois appears to hurt him again with solid work to the body.

This is developing into a closely contested fight as Dubois' confidence continues to grow, and the alarm seems clear from Usyk as he begins to throw more and more power punches in an attempt to get his opponent out of there.

Usyk is definitely up on points, but Dubois should take confidence from the fact he has already demonstrated he has the power to hurt the Ukrainian.

Bet on Usyk v Dubois

Oleksandr Usyk v Daniel Dubois (Round Six)

If there was any doubt about the competitiveness of this fight, there certainly won't be now with Dubois having definitely grown into the contest following the dramatic events of the fifth round.

There is some controversy surrounding the alleged low blow in the fifth round, with replays suggesting the shot from Dubois may have indeed been legal and therefore perhaps should have called an end to the fight.

Usyk certainly appears to be somewhat vulnerable to body shots, having squirmed again in the sixth after Dubois caught him with another punch close to the belt line.

Bet on Usyk v Dubois

Oleksandr Usyk v Daniel Dubois (Round Five)

Alarm inside the stadium as Ukrainian hero Usyk hits the canvas at the beginning of the round after being hit by a low blow from Dubois.

The champion appeared in clear discomfort as he was allowed several minutes to recover, and didn't seem overly comfortable in there initially following the resumption of the action.

Despite these moments of vulnerability, Usyk finished the round strongly, nailing Dubois with a number of crisp shots with a steely look on his face.

Bet on Usyk v Dubois

Oleksandr Usyk v Daniel Dubois (Round Four)

A more competitive round, with Dubois showing more aggression and getting closer to his target.

The 25-year-old appears to be growing in confidence in there, but does continue to be caught by Usyk's ever-reliable stiff jab.

Will we see Dubois grow into this fight or will Usyk have other ideas?

Bet on Usyk v Dubois

Oleksandr Usyk v Daniel Dubois (Round Three)

Another strong round for the champion, who looks keen to stay on the outside as much as possible and enjoy success with his phenomenal jab.

Dubois is finding it hard to hit Usyk with anything of real note thus far, with the Ukrainian's immaculate defence as of yet mostly unchallenged.

The Brit needs to earn Usyk's respect out there and land something clean to push him back and thwart his constant pressure.

Bet on Usyk v Dubois

Oleksandr Usyk v Daniel Dubois (Round Two)

Usyk stuns the challenger with a peach of a left hand at the beginning of the round, with Dubois appearing to struggle with the pace and intensity of the slick Ukrainian.

Bobbing in and out with his slippery southpaw style, Usyk takes the second round comfortably and will have been buoyed by his ability to land flush on Dubois' chin on a number of occasions.

Dubois will have to sharpen up as we enter Round Three.

Bet on Usyk v Dubois

Oleksandr Usyk v Daniel Dubois (Round One)

The bout begins at an incredibly fast tempo, with the champion Usyk taking the centre of the ring and looking to put pressure on Dubois immediately.

Usyk tested the mettle of his British counterpart with a few sharp jabs, but it was a steady opening round for the 25-year-old who will seek to use his considerable size advantage to his benefit as much as possible.

It really is a stunning setting at the Tarczynski Arena, with Usyk wearing a blue and yellow shoe on either foot in homage to his beloved Ukraine.

Bet on Usyk v Dubois

It's go time...

With both fighters now inside the ring, we are now just seconds out from this highly-anticipated heavyweight showdown between Oleksandr Usyk and Daniel Dubois.

Usyk's ringwalk was as powerful and uplifting as expected, with the 40,000 capacity Tarczynski Arena desperate to see their man prevail.

It's Oleksandr Usyk v Daniel Dubois for the unified WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight titles in Wroclaw.

Bet on Usyk v Dubois

Ringwalks imminent

The ringwalks for tonight's main event in Wroclaw are now imminent, with a message from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky broadcast inside the stadium and around the world.

What an occasion we have in store, as Ukrainian icon Oleksandr Usyk gets the opportunity to fight in front of his own people.

Does Britain's Daniel Dubois have what it takes to spoil Usyk's homecoming?

We will soon have the answer.

Main Event up next...

Aadam Hamed earns first round stoppage

Well, Aadam Hamed's professional debut didn't last long...

In a clear mismatch, the young Briton overwhelmed his Czech opponent Wojcech Hrdy who was significantly smaller in size, ending the bout following a flurry of unreturned punches in the corner.

Hamed certainly looked comfortable in there, with some of his movement and mannerisms reminiscent of his legendary old man, but in truth there's not much to be learned regarding his potential given the calibre of his opponent tonight.

Aadam Hamed is a name to look out for nonetheless.

Aadam Hamed set for professional debut

Up next, the son of British boxing icon Prince Naseem Hamed - Aadam Hamed - will make his professional debut.

Standing in his way is Czech fighter Wojcech Hrdy, with the inexperienced duo set to compete in a four round bout.

What an opportunity for these two young fighters. If  23-year-old Aadam Hamed is even half of the fighter or personality of his old man, he could be a very exciting prospect for British fight fans.

This is the last remaining fight on the undercard before tonight's main event - Oleksandr Usyk v Daniel Dubois.

Oleksandr Usyk: In Profile

A pound-for-pound great of boxing, tonight will mark a special occasion for Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk as he prepares to fight in front of thousands of his countrymen and women in Wroclaw, Poland.

A national icon in Ukraine, Usyk is more than just a boxer - he is a symbol of hope for his countrymen and women in what are extremely testing times.

Inside the ring the 36-year-old is a genius, with a slick and slippery southpaw style which bamboozles his opponents.

After cleaning up the cruiserweight division as undisputed champion, Usyk's capability of moving up to heavyweight and enjoying the same success was up for debate.

Such questions have been answered in emphatic fashion, however, with Usyk becoming world champion after toppling Anthony Joshua in his own back yard in 2021, before repeating the feat in Saudi Arabia a year later.

Usyk will be desperate to continue his unbeaten record and send his loyal band of supporters happy in Poland tonight.

Daniel Dubois: In Profile

Still only 25 years of age, Daniel Dubois has enjoyed an impressive rise in the heavyweight ranks since making his professional debut back in 2017.

Winning the British heavyweight title in bruising fashion in 2019, knocking out Nathan Gorman in the fifth round, Dubois has built a reputation as a devastating knockout puncher.

Previously billed as one of the top prospects in British boxing, Dubois' stock fell somewhat after suffering his first career defeat against compatriot Joe Joyce in 2020, but has since bounced back with four successive wins to set up tonight's meeting with Oleksandr Usyk.

Undoubtedly the biggest fight of his career to date, Dubois will be desperate to give a good account of himself and give the great Usyk as uncomfortable a night as possible in Wroclaw.

Oleksandr Usyk v Daniel Dubois: All You Need to Know

Previously undisputed cruiserweight champion of the world, Oleksandr Usyk has taken to the heavyweight division like a duck to water, winning four bouts in his new weight class including two sensational victories against Anthony Joshua.

Claiming the WBA, IBF, WBO heavyweight titles against Joshua in London in September 21, and then retaining them against the Brit in Saudi Arabia just under a year later, tonight's clash with Daniel Dubois will be Usyk's second defence of his title reign.

Although Dubois is priced as a big underdog at 11/2, he undoubtedly remains a dangerous opponent for Usyk in front of what will be an army of Ukrainian fans inside the Tarczynski Arena in Wroclaw.

25-year-old Dubois has a professional boxing record of 19-1, 18 of those wins coming by way of knockout, and the Londoner will have a significant height and weight advantage against his Ukrainian counterpart.
