Renowned commentator Vladimir Gendlin said he doubted the ability of the former undisputed world heavyweight champion Alexander Usik to become a world-class star after moving to the heavyweight division.
“I don’t want to make such completely lethal conclusions, but it seems to me that Usyk, with all his merits, will never become a superstar. It’s not that he’s not hitting. It’s just that he has a very rational manner.
He is technically well equipped in all respects, but there really isn’t … It so happens that in every round with a serious, dangerous, hitting guy, a climax can come. Once it comes down to it, he just doesn’t get involved. It closes, leaves, shifts, and so on, “- said Vladimir Gendlin in an interview with the YouTube channel USACHEV TV.
Recall that Gendlin also explained why Vasily Lomachenko lost to Teofimo Lopez.
