“That Guy Got Robbed”: Boxing Reporter’s Remarks On Oleksandr Usyk’s Controversial Win Against Daniel Dubois Draws Scathing Response From Fans

Over the weekend, Oleksandr Usyk fought and successfully defended his heavyweight title against Daniel Dubois. The bout was competitive while it lasted. Dubois had his moments in the fight but the Ukrainian boxer knocked him down in the eighth and secured a finish in the ninth. However, the contest has garnered scrutiny and attention for some other reason. In the fifth round, the British fighter floored the champion. However, the shot was considered, a ‘low blow,’ and was not declared a knockdown. Moreover, many boxing fans and pundits do not consider the shot to be a low blow and feel that Dubois was robbed of a knockdown.
