– Loma, what is your reaction to the duel?

– I have one question – what is this at the expense of 115 – 113 in favor of Joshua? This referee, does he understand boxing or not?

– This is madness. How did you see the fight? How would you rate Usyk’s performance?

“It was a very great fight. They both showed us a great character, a great character of warriors. Amazing duel.

— What does this victory mean for the people of Ukraine?

“It means a lot because it is a big victory for our country. Sorry, I don’t know how to explain this in English, but this is a big win.

– With whom do you want to see Oleksandr Usyk’s next fight, with Tyson Fury?

– I want to see the next fight for the green title on the line – for the WBC. It will be Fury or another boxer – it doesn’t matter.

What can you say about Anthony Joshua’s performance?

– He changed the strategy a bit, but it didn’t help him, because Usyk is on another level!

Do you believe Fury is retired?

– I dont know. Sorry.

When will we see you return to the ring?

– October 29 in New York.

– Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia are constantly “rolling the barrel” at each other. If this fight takes place, who will you choose as the winner?

“This is a very good fight, but we have another top fighter in this division. So let’s see.
