Eddie Hearn, promoter of British heavyweight veteran Derek Chisora (32-10-0, 23 KO), believes that not the most confident performance of the “pound” Ukrainian Alexander Usik (18-0-0, 13 KO) is largely due to the success of his ward.
“This fight turned out to be really useful for Usyk, because he had a hard time. He took, at most, two rounds out of the first six. In the first three minutes he swayed like a rag doll.
When he returned to his corner, he looked like he was asking, “What’s going on here?” You have to show a lot of respect for Chisora as he competed with a pound-for-pound fighter and gave him a test, “Hearn said.
