Joshua was comprehensively outclassed by Usyk when they first met in 2021 and, despite putting up a better effort in their 2022 rematch, came up short for a second time.

Dubois is far less accomplished than AJ and therefore a major underdog ahead of Saturday’s fight, live on talkSPORT.

However, when asked if his fellow Brit has a chance, Joshua told Sky: “Of course he has.

“It’s a tough ask, of course.

“The thing with Usyk is. He doesn’t depend on his power to knock you out. He depends on his skill.

“That’s why it’s a tough ask. Because he’s going to box rings around you if you let him.

“Dubois, good luck, Don Charles [Dubois’ new trainer] good luck, Great British boxing good luck.We potentially might have the heavyweight championship back on our soil.”
