Keys to Victory 

While this fight has the potential to continue until the final bell, it could end just before the fight goes the distance. Our Hrgovic vs Dubois prediction is a late stoppage win for Hrgovic, given the vulnerability Dubois shows in late stages of fights. He is five years younger than Hrgovic, but given the Croat’s incredible stamina levels, it should not make much of a difference. 

Filip Hrgovic: Weather the Early Storm 

Despite compiling an undefeated record of 17-0, Filip Hrgovic has missed out on a world title shot thus far. However, victory over Dubois this weekend could well propel him into contention finally.

The task at hand, however, is far from easy. Dubois is an agile fighter, with incredible punching power. Hrgovic, however, has the technical acumen to survive the early onslaught. If he manages to take the fight to the dying rounds, he should be able to take advantage.

Daniel Dubois: Keep Hold of the Momentum 

Our Hrgovic vs Dubois prediction has Dubois as an underdog. That said, he has enough reason to believe he can put a dent in Hrgovic’s title aspirations. 

Dubois can draw inspiration from his performance against Oleksandr Usyk. Even though Dubois got knocked out in the ninth round, he fought valiantly against a world class fighter. Hrgovic is unlikely to present such a formidable challenge. 

If Dubois can get off to a good start, the key will be to retain momentum. Allowing Hrgovic a way back into the fight might not bode well for the Briton. So, he needs to make the most of any dominant periods in the fight.
