Krasiuk speaks about Usyk's career

Absolute world heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (22-0, 14 KOs) is not going to end his career anytime soon. After defeating Tyson Fury (34-1-1, 24 KOs) on May 18, the Ukrainian boxer intends to recover and then start preparing for a rematch.

This was stated in an interview with talkSport by the promoter of our compatriot Oleksandr Krasiuk, Boxing Social reports. Usyk's representative noted that he had never had any conversations with his ward about the fact that he could end his professional career.

"We never had any talks about Usyk retiring from boxing. Maybe there were rumors, maybe someone else expressed their thoughts, but we never discussed it. This issue is not relevant for us. It is always the decision of the fighter. When he feels that he has nothing to prove when he feels that he doesn't want to wake up at five in the morning and do three workouts a day, if he's tired of it, then it's probably time for him to hang up the gloves," said Krasiuk.

As a reminder, on May 18, Usyk defeated Fury by split decision. Saudi Arabia has already officially announced the date of the boxers' rematch. In turn, the International Boxing Federation (IBF) has decided to deprive the Ukrainian of his belt.

Initially, it was planned that Usyk would be stripped of his IBF title, but three reasons were given for why it was beneficial for promoters and organizations to keep all the belts for the Ukrainian.

Earlier, former world champion Carl Froch named the main culprit behind Tyson's defeat of Alexander. He also expressed confidence that Usyk should end his career.

Former boxer David Haye predicted that there would be no rematch between the Ukrainian and Fury. His compatriot Dereck Chisora started rumors that Oleksandr would return to the heavyweight division.
