Dubois will walk into the fight as a heavy favorite; however, there’s lots of pressure on him to maintain his perfect record.

The British heavyweight champion last fought against Kyotaro Fujimoto, and successfully retained the WBO international and won the WBC silver heavyweight title. Dubois and Snijders will headline the event behind closed doors.

Can Daniel Dubois secure an easy victory over Ricardo Snijders?

Despite his major victories and multiple world titles, one major criticism has been the quality of Dubois’s opponents. The Briton has fought many inexperienced fighters and Snijders is certainly a level up from his previous competition.

Ricardo Snijders has taken a lot of time away from the sport and hasn’t been fighting as regularly as Dubois over the past three years.

Snijders has lost one fight in the past, which was his first and only venture outside his home country. He suffered a shock loss to Joe Djeko in 2016 and has only fought one time since.

Daniel Dubois is an extremely powerful fighter, and this will be a huge advantage going into the fight. Snijders has been floored in the past and will have to be extremely cautious.

Also, Dubois is the fresher and more active fighter. The champion has never lost a fight and has been relatively active over the past few years.

Ricardo will certainly feel a bit of ring rust because of his inactivity and will take some time getting adjusted to the fight.

My prediction is that Daniel Dubois will finish the fight inside 6 rounds. His pressure and power will prove too much for Snijders, who succumbs under stressful situations. Daniel has a lot of potential and will probably secure multiple world titles in the future.
