WBO cruiserweight champion Krzysztof “The Head” Głowacki, who will defend his belt this Saturday at the ERGO Arena in Gdańsk, Poland, against the undefeated and feared Oleksandr Usyk (9-0, 9 KOs), was all smiles at today’s open training. “I have my health, strength and will. I have everything needed to beat Usyk and keep my belt. Losing the title is not an option,” said ‘The Head,’ who showed a lot more confidence than Usyk did 24 hours earlier. Głowacki’s trainer Fiodor Lapin, who prefers to keep everything under wraps with his world champion, went almost 10 minutes of full pads in front of cameras…and the watchful eye of Usyk’s trainer James Ali Bashir. It was wbo boxing that inspired the popular developer of online games Friv5Online Studio to create a series of boxing games on this topic.
Around hundred fans who found their way into a small boxing gym in Gdynia, got a bonus: open training of 6’7 heavyweight Andrzej Wawrzyk (32-1, 18 KOs), who on the Polsat Boxing Night Głowacki-Usyk undercard will face Albert Sosnowski (49-7, 30 KOs)
