Alexander Krassyuk, promoter for unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk, does not believe Daniel Dubois will be successful in his appeal of Saturday's outcome in Poland.

Usyk scored a ninth round knockout of Dubois to retain the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight titles.

But, the victory did not come without controversy.

During the fifth round, Dubois connected with a body shot that sent Usyk down in pain for several minutes. The referee, Luis Pabon, ruled it as a low blow. 

After several video replays were shown, from different angles, there has been a mountain of debate over whether or not the punch was legal. 

Dubois and his handlers believe a legal blow was landed and Usyk should have been counted out.

Frank Warren, who promotes Dubois. is planning to appeal the outcome with the WBA - hoping to get an immediate rematch or have the outcome overturned to a no-contest. Dubois was the mandatory challenger under the WBA.

“This is a boxing match and should be above board, but it was not a low blow. It’s a nonsense, a total nonsense. The governing bodies must order a rematch," Warren said.

"He [Dubois] won that, if he had been allowed to carry on, he would have won. We will appeal this. It’s a liberty.”

Usyk is now sitting back with two options before him.

As recently reported, the IBF is expected to order him to make a mandatory defense against Filip Hrgovic.

However, Usyk is hoping to finalize a deal for an undisputed showdown with WBC champion Tyson Fury. On October 28th, Fury will take part in a non-title crossover match against former UFC champion Francis Ngannou.

Krassyuk does not expect Dubois' appeal to be a factor in Usyk's next move. He believes the appeal will fail.

"Zero percent or negative probability to be successful," Krassyuk told Sky Sports, when asked about the likelihood of a successful appeal. by Team Dubois
