Dubois, who is the favourite with the bookmakers, may be giving away weight but the 21-year-old is half-an-inch taller and has a five-inch reach advantage over his opponent.
Former Olympian Joe Joyce will continue his career in the pro ranks when he faces former world title challenger Bryant Jennings.
Joyce, who won silver at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, will be chasing his 10th straight win when he faces the American heavyweight.
Jennings returns to the ring on the back of a stoppage defeat to Oscar Rivas, who faces Dillian Whyte on the Greenwich peninsula on July 20.
