Caroline Dubois is regarded as one of Team GB’s best chances of a boxing medal at Tokyo 2020
Dubois won the gold medal at the 2018 Summer Youth Olympics, beating Porntip Buapa in the lightweight division
She is the sister of British professional boxer Daniel Dubois
If you’re into boxing betting, you’ll be familiar with the surname Dubois. However, you may not have heard of new kid on the block Caroline Dubois.
Sister to British star and WBA interim heavyweight title holder Daniel, Caroline has a fantastic opportunity to announce herself on the big stage.
Although inexperienced compared to some of her competitors, Dubois came up trumps at the 2018 Summer Youth Olympics in Argentina.
The 12-month delay to Tokyo 2020 should work in Caroline’s favour, with that additional year giving her the chance to focus on improving elements of her style.
Without further ado, it is time to look at Team GB boxing star Caroline Dubois. Will the British fighter be celebrating Olympic gold later this summer?
Caroline Dubois Olympics
In 2018, Caroline Dubois shocked the world when she announced herself on the boxing stage at the Summer Youth Olympics in Argentina.
Dubois was outstanding throughout the Games, dominating her preliminary bout before winning her semi-final to set up a contest with Porntip Buapa.
Caroline was labelled ‘the best female boxer’ that Mike Costello has ever seen and that kind of praise puts her in an elite bracket heading to Tokyo 2020.
Winning a boxing gold medal at the Olympics is the ultimate dream and Caroline Dubois can follow in the footsteps of Anthony Joshua and Nicola Adams by clinching the top prize.
Caroline Dubois Height
Standing at 5 foot, 5 inches, Caroline Dubois isn’t the biggest female boxer around but she is certainly powerful and her incredible physique counts for much more than height.
Like brother Daniel, Caroline is a power puncher and she will certainly be one of the top Team GB hopes going into the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Her southpaw stance can be advantageous against some of her inexperienced opponents but ultimately it is her speed rather than her height that gives her an edge in the ring.
Plenty of punters will be looking at boxing betting tips for the Olympics and Caroline Dubois is likely to be near the head of the odds. Watch this space…
