"Seriously?" Usyk jumped up at the press conference, unable to hold emotions back after accusations from Dubois. Video
Ukrainian super heavyweight Oleksandr (21-0, 14 KOs) did not hold back his emotions after accusations that he missed a legitimate punch to the stomach and faked a low blow in the 5th round of his fight against Daniel Dubois (19-1, 18 KOs). According to Krasiuk, the Briton's team accused Usyk of wearing his shorts "too high" even before the fight.
In response, Oleksandr jumped up from his seat, lifted his T-shirt and showed where his shorts were, adding, "You can't hit here."
"So it's Usyk's fault that his shorts were [high]? If we stand side by side in the ring and look at how our shorts are worn, it's the same height. Seriously? Usyk's shorts were high. Comedy! He lost and he says my shorts were... I can beat him without shorts at all," Oleksandr Usyk.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, Ukrainian champion WBO, WBA and IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 13 KOs) defeated Daniel Dubois (19-2, 18 KOs) ahead of schedule. The denouement came in the 9th round when the Briton missed a heavy blow to the head.
Usyk took the microphone from the host immediately after the victory and commented on all the events that took place in the ring.
Dubois' team later filed an appeal.
In addition, the live TV broadcast included the emotions of Usyk's wife Kateryna. The camera showed how the woman reacted to the fight.
The Ukrainian anthem made a sensation among the spectators gathered at the Tarczynski Arena in Wroclaw, Poland.
