Josh and Boz discuss the heavyweight action from the weekend.  Usyk retained his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles with a ninth-round knockout of Daniel Dubois in Wroclaw, Poland. Usyk, who is now the mandatory challenger for WBC titleholder Tyson Fury, said he is ready to fight Fury next.  The Polish city of Wroclaw has a large Ukrainian population. Usyk thanked his family and the Ukrainian army for their support. Usyk made his ring entrance after a video message from Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy was played at the stadium. Dubois has impressive power, but he looked vulnerable in his most recent fights. Usyk was dropped by a low blow in the fifth round, but he recovered and went on to win the fight. Aadam Hamed, the son of "Prince" Naseem Hamed, had a quick professional debut, stopping Vojtech Hrdy in the first round of a super lightweight bout.  Jared Anderson stopped Andriy Rudenko in the fifth round of their fight in Tulsa. Anderson landed a career-high 72 body shots and forced the referee to stop the fight at 1:40 of the round.  The fight was the second in 56 days for Anderson. Anderson landed 141 of 279 punches (50.5%). Anderson said he was sending a statement to himself with the win.
