Review: Who's Better Prepared For The Battle Of Britain?

Joyce’s showcase fight was far more beneficial for him than Dubois.

By Jake Adkin   - @JakeAdkinSport

In what turned out to be a pretty laughable mismatch, young heavyweight sensation Daniel “Dynamite” Dubois knocked out stand-in Dutch opponent Ricardo Snijders in the second round of a fight that was anything but competitive. Snijders, who had only lost once previously in his career before Saturday night, was stopped in round two after being knocked down a number of times due to body shots in the first round. The resounding win moves “Triple D” to a record of 15-0 with 14 wins coming inside the distance.

In a fight that was scheduled to be a precursor to an eventual meeting with fellow British heavyweight “The Juggernaut” Joe Joyce, Dubois was faced with zero offensive output from Snijders and got his man out of there with ease. Just a month earlier, Joyce had his scheduled tune-up fight against the German Michael Wallisch. The German, who had been in with far more recognisable names than Snijders (such as Efe Ajagba & Tony Yoka), actually had moderate success in the first round of his contest with Joyce, making the large Brit think about what he needed to do to get to his opponent. This alone shows more resistance than what Ricardo Snijders conjured up for Daniel Dubois. 

It would be fair to say that Joyce had the far better tune-up of the two. The two fights were designed to allow Dubois and Joyce to showcase their talents whilst simultaneously sharpening their tools for when they finally meet later in the year. Joyce’s edge in regard to this, paired with the more impressive resume of the two stands the far-older former Olympian in far better stead in terms of preparation over his youthful foe. This said, Dubois obviously is the far more eye-catching of the two. Facing far lesser opposition than Joyce, he stills finds himself the bookmaker’s favourite in the upcoming bout of the two. 

Both men are still in need of a breakout win in the paid ranks and are seemingly perfect for each other. One a seasoned amateur, one a youthful pro still learning on the job. With differing styles and differing boxing backgrounds, the bout between the two is a very interesting fixture. That said, Joyce has had the better preparation going in.
