Undefeated Ukrainian boxer Petro Ivanov (17-0-2, 12 KOs) believes that the victory of the absolute world heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (22-0, 14 KOs) in a rematch with former WBC titleholder Tyson Fury (34-1-1, 24 KOs) will put an end to the Ukrainian's career. Ivanov assumes that in this case Oleksandr will retire from the professional ring, because he will have nothing left to strive for.

"Usyk has the character of a champion. That's all I can say. Despite such a tough battle, to find the strength after the hard rounds and still take what is his and write history in the boxing world. If Usyk wins the rematch, it will be the end of his career because he has achieved everything in boxing. Otherwise, there will be a trilogy," tribuna.com quoted Ivanov as saying.

"Tyson was really very well prepared. In addition, there were several very accurate uppercuts. Interestingly, at the beginning of the fight, Fury seemed to be losing ground, but from the third round on, the picture of the fight changed," summarized Petro.
