Lewis shook off the first losing streak of his pro career between 2018 and 2019 with four consecutive wins, including a knockout of perennial contender Curtis Blaydes, on his way to an interim heavyweight title fight against Cyril Gane.
Opposed to him is the former criminal Derrick Lewis, who in the last fight without a chance lost to Cyril Gun, who won interim heavyweight title. However, 36-year-old Derrick, nicknamed Black Beast, is in no hurry to write off – a person with such a powerful blow simply cannot be considered an outsider.
Dokos, going on a series of four victories, which included fights with the Russians Alexei Oleinik and Shamil Abdurakhimov, is the main favorite of this fight. All major bookmakers base their bets on it. He throws punches in volume and is quickly establishing himself as one of the best boxers at heavyweight. Daukaus may not possess Lewis’ freakish power, but he might punch his ticket to the world title if he can pick apart his opponent.
The black beast is good at eliminating holes in the enemy’s defense – as soon as the enemy starts to beat, he hits very hard. Derrick is especially good at close range: there he literally breaks any opponent who, after another heavy blow, immediately falls into the ring.
