Alexander Usik: “Mike Tyson showed how much you can change the beast and become a human”

Ukrainian heavyweight Alexander Usik spoke about his attitude to the legends of heavyweight – Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield.

“Who is extra from the list of Tyson, Lewis, Holyfield? Absolutely none. Everyone is an independent unit. And everyone has done a lot for the development of not only boxing and sports, but also life.

A very strong dude Holyfield. His mom motivated him to go in for sports. In my opinion, the dude was born with a congenital heart defect and achieved such results. I lost in competitions, came home and said: “That’s it, I’ll quit.” And my mother answered: “Son, try again.” Then he came with the first place, and my mother said: “Now you can throw.” And he: “How, I won”? That is, so motivated.

Look, Mike Tyson showed how much you can change the beast and become human. He was a very aggressive dude, but nevertheless showed how to get out of it all. There are absolutely no superfluous ones here, “Alexander Usyk said in an interview with the YouTube channel” Without Makeup with Anna Butkevich “.

We will remind, Usyk also said that he would have defeated both Klitschko brothers.
