The holder of the WBA, IBF and WBO world heavyweight titles, Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs), said that he could hold a maximum of three more fights at his peak. Then, apparently, he will end his career.
He, having listed the desired rivals, told about this in
interview youtube channel Usyk17.
– There is an opinion that in two fights with Anthony Joshua Oleksandr Usyk was the peak. Can Oleksandr Usyk be better?
– Maximum three times. Three fights can be a peak.
Have you already had two of them?
– How much was it?
– That’s it, after this second fight, for a maximum of three more fights, I can be a peak. Three preparations.
Are you saying that there are three fights left in your boxing career?
– Let me guess – two fights with Fury and a farewell fight at the “Olympic”?
– No, with Fury, with Canelo and “Olympic” – goodbye. Canelo wanted to box. But it will be a freakboy. To earn money purely.
- Usyk is No. 1 in the world, according to Canelo Alvarez
Sasha, are you a freak?
– They say yes [смеётся].
Do you really have the Canelo fight in your head?
– Why not? Pure lava.
– Come on, who would you prefer to fight for the absolute: Joshua, Fury and I will write down Wilder here?
– Most convenient?
– Most convenient.
— I think with Wilder.
- Fight Usyk – Wilder is very real – the manager of an American
Who would you like to box with?
– With Tyson Fury.
– Your statement after the fight: “Either with Fury, or with no one” – is it emotions?
– Yes, Fury needs to be beaten and that’s it. And to rest.
– You yourself said about three fights.
– Yes, otherwise there will be Freakboys.
– Applicants line up for all your titles. Will there be no fights with them?
– I do not want to box with applicants.
— What kind of principle is this?
— [смеётся] There is no principle here. I just want to fight Fury right now. A unification fight is better than just fighting or defending. Unification duel – and all.
