The mandatory contender for the WBO world heavyweight title Alexander Usik was unhappy with his performance in the fight with Derek Chisora. However, the Ukrainian boxer is confident that he will be able to perform better in the future.
Usyk expects to fight for the title in the next fight. According to him, if reigning WBA / WBO / IBF champion Anthony Joshua refuses to fight him to fight WBC belt holder Tyson Fury, then AJ will have to vacate the WBO belt.
“I think I can do better. I haven’t boxed for a year, so it took me a while to warm up. We will definitely perform better in the future. Thank God this fight ended the way it ended.”
I think we should ask when will Eddie Hearn fight Joshua. I dont know. I’m a must-have for Anthony Joshua. Therefore, he has two options: fight me or vacate the title and fight Tyson Fury “, – said Alexander Usik in an interview with Sky Sports.
