Undefeated Ukrainian welterweight Taras Shelestyuk believes that Alexander Usik’s fight against British heavyweight Derek Chisora once again showed that the former cruiserweight leader needs to work on his striking power.
“Usyk hit well in the seventh or eighth round. Sanya threw out a combination that didn’t even shake Chisora. It speaks of the lack of punching power in the heavyweight division, which Usyk needs to work on and pay more attention to in the gym.
He is good at walking, bodywork, defensive action and lightning attacks, but in addition to all this, he needs a good, weighty punch to compete with top heavyweight boxers such as Fury, Wilder, Joshua and White. So he will be able to stop them, and rivals will respect him during the fight, “Taras Shelestyuk said in a review published on his YouTube channel.
We will remind, Shelestyuk also named the two most difficult rivals for Usyk in the heavyweight division.
