Wilder hopes for Usyk’s word


On October 15, IBF/WBO/WBA heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) will be in the United States as a spectator at the fight of former WBC champion Deontay Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs) against Robert Helenius. Earlier, the Ukrainian said that he would like to meet this American puncher if he defeats the Finn.

The Bronze Bomber now hopes that Usyk will stay true to his word. I mean, he repeated again about his hopes so that he would not forget.

In fairness, we note that Alexander did not give any word: a statement in the spirit of “well, yes, it would be interesting to meet” does not in any way draw on a promise.

“I heard that he will come here. I consider Usyk a man of his word,” Wilder said.
Sky Sports. “If he says he wants to give me a chance to take the belts, then I count on his word.”

Wilder: “I heard about Usyk’s situation…”

At the same time, the American caught himself a little, remembering that he had a comeback fight on his nose, and added: “I always say that I don’t look behind the backs of the fighters, but I look into the future “through” them; There is nothing wrong. It is to be self-confident and look ahead once the current chapter of the career is closed. I take on one fight at a time.”

On September 22, Usyk stated that “he only had 3 fights left.”

Wilder, 36, is looking to reclaim his title after two straight losses to Fury.
