British heavyweight gatekeeper David Allen was recently at Oleksandr Usyk’s training camp, where he helped the Ukrainian prepare for a fight against Derek Chisora. After this visit, Allen in every interview with the British media willingly talked about his impressions of training with the former undisputed world champion in the first heavyweight division.
Meanwhile, Usyk, when a journalist from the YouTube channel SecondsOut asked him to talk about sparring with Allen, flatly refused to do so.
“Sparring with Allen? I’m not going to talk about the things I do. If you are interested, you can call David and ask. He perfectly performed the tasks that my team put before him. It was great sparring,” said Alexander Usik in interview with SecondsOut.
We will remind that Usyk also reacted to the words of David Haye that only Evander Holyfield was better than him in cruiserweight.
