Oleksandr Usyk: “More than 100 missiles were fired in Ukraine in 4 days”


Unified heavyweight champion (over 90.7 kg) from Ukraine Oleksandr Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs) answered questions from British media representatives after holding a press conference in London on his upcoming rematch against former British champion Anthony Joshua (24 -2, 22 KOs).

During the interview, Alexander spoke about the current tragic consequences of Putin’s military aggression against the population of Ukraine, spoke about the difficult training camp and the significance of his future victory.

– Anthony himself, Robert Garcia – everyone says that everything will be different in this fight. Are you going to do things differently?

“Of course it will be different. This will be the second fight.

— Can you tell us exactly what is happening now on Ukrainian soil? This is a very sensitive topic, but it is very important for our audience. Can you tell me what’s going on there?

– Do you watch any news?

– Sometimes.

– Over the past 4 days, more than 100 missiles have been fired at Ukraine. They get into houses, into residential buildings where people live. There are no military bases and infrastructure there. These are shopping centers, these are hospitals, this is an ordinary city where there are no military enterprises and something where military equipment can be made. And I don’t get this information from TV or the news. This information comes to me from my friends who are now in Kyiv and in general in Ukraine.

– What did the military say about your fight with Joshua?

– They supported me and asked me to make a decision to leave the country and agree to revenge.

— How difficult was this training process in comparison with others, in view of the circumstances that are now taking place in Ukraine?

He continues to be heavy. I still have a lot of time to restore myself, to restore my form, which has become a little worse.

– If the revenge is successful, what will it mean for you and for the Ukrainian people?

– Such questions are “if”. He will be successful. My people will rejoice greatly, and I will rejoice with them.

– Do you expect the next fight to be similar to the previous one?

We will see it on August 20th.
