The gold medalist of the 2016 Olympic Games, as well as the owner of the WBO Intercontinental belt in the first heavyweight division, Yevgeny Tishchenko shared his opinion on the upcoming fight between Alexander Usik and Derek Chisora, which will take place on October 31st.
“Usyk is a clear favorite to this fight. And many experts say that Usyk should win,” Tishchenko said. – “I think this is a very good fight for Usyk. Because Chisora still has a name, plus he will be an excellent test for Usyk in the heavyweight division.
And finally, this fight will take place. For about a year they have not been able to organize it, plus there the pandemic interfered. Now they already have a date … I forgot – which one. In general, we are looking forward, we will be rooting for Alexander.
I like him as a person and I also like his boxing style. Despite the fact that, he said somewhere in an interview that Leviticus, in his opinion, won. He still appeals to me both as a person and as a boxer. So I will root for him. “
