The clash of styles and opposing personalties makes for Britain’s biggest ever fight – with fans divided on the outcome.

But 22-year-old hot prospect Dubois, gives WBC champion Fury the slight edge against unified WBA, IBF and WBO king AJ.

He told SPORTbible: “Fury at the moment. His skill and his know-how, coupled with his confidence should beat Joshua.

“But it will be a really good fight. I wouldn’t be surprised if it went the other way and Joshua won.”

Dubois shared the ring with Fury when the Gypsy King was deep in depression and as a result overweight – but his talented had not left him.

He said: “He jumped in for one round with me in Bolton, just before I turned pro.

“I was sparring his cousin Hughie and we did a round together – he was really overweight back then, so it was just quick.

“He’s just as slippery as he looks though. He’s a masterful boxer – he’s learned his craft well.”

Dubois earned a name for himself even before turning pro, following rumours he dropped a then-unbeaten Joshua in the gym.

But the soft-spoken prodigy remained tight lipped about the infamous spar, instead honouring the code of ‘what happens in sparring stays in sparring’.

Dubois explained: ” I want to build my own respect now.

“That was before I turned over and it gave me a great launching pad in the pro game – made everyone interested!

“All these promoters suddenly wanted to sign me… ‘Who’s this kid?’ But now I want to build my own respect.”
