Huge Oleksandr Usyk Press Conference in Kiev
Over one hundred media members signed up for a press conference to be present at the official homecoming ceremony of boxing’s brand-new Jr. Heavyweight undisputed world champion, Oleksandr Usyk on Wednesday afternoon in Kiev.
During the show Usyk and his promoter, General Director of K2 Promotions’s Ukrainian section, Alexander A. Krassyuk spoke about Team Usyk’s scheduled heavyweight run, the possibility of a bout against Tony Bellew, and the regulation by the WBO regarding a bout against the organization’s heavyweight titleholder, Anthony Joshua.
Usyk (15-0, 11 KOs) found himself in the epitome of the business side of world boxing after he beat fellow unbeaten Murat Gassiev in a super-fight for all the marbles in the 200-pound division that also served as the finals of the celebrated World Boxing Super Series tournament in Moscow on July 21.
