Oleksandr Gvozdyk: “I’m coming back”


Former WBC world light heavyweight champion (up to 79.4 kg), 35-year-old Ukrainian Oleksandr Gvozdyk (17-1, 14 KOs) firmly decided to resume his boxing career, which he unexpectedly announced the end of in the first half of 2020, after early defeat from Artur Beterbiev.

“I am returning, I confirm this,” Alexander said. – In my case, unfortunately, I can’t do it like that… I would like to do it the way Ivan Redkach does it. But I can’t do that. So I’m working on it.”

According to Gvozdyk, he may enter the ring in the first quarter of 2023. “The opposition will not be a champion, a top one,” he stressed. – There will be some kind of opposition to return. The opposition will be one that I have to pass easily in order to get back the feeling I should have in the ring.”

But so far, there are no specifics.

“I don’t want to reassure anyone that it will be 100%. Because I was already given three dates and all three fell through, – says the ex-champion. “So when I sign the contract, the first thing I will do is post a poster for my comeback fight. But now it’s such a teaser, call it what you want. Yes, I am preparing, I am constantly training. But it’s quite difficult to find an opponent and a team to work with.”
