The emblem on the uniform of undefeated Ukrainian super heavyweight Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) in his fight against Daniel Dubois (19-2, 18 KOs) caused a stir in social networks. On the Crimean's shorts was drawn a chrisma - a monogram made up of the first letters of the Greek word "Christ" - "Anointed One". On the edges of the monogram were placed the Greek letters "a" and "ω" - alpha and omega.
The fact that Usyk is boxing in a uniform allegedly bearing the symbols of Russian neo-Nazis was brought to the attention of some Ukrainian Telegram channels.
Usyk boxed in the same outfit against Joshua as well.
However, the same emblem, was also used by the Orthodox organization "Sorok sorokov". This is a Russian public movement that positions itself as an association for Orthodox believers with an active civic position.
The founders are adherents of the ideas of Russian neo-Nazism, composer Andrei Kormukhin (brother of singer Olga Kormukhina) and athlete Vladimir Nosov.
The terrorist Igor Girkin was once in close contact with the "Sorok sorokov". After the start of the full-scale invasion, the organization has been actively supplying its "orthodox militia" to the "armies" of the "L/DPR". Last year, the organization's Telegram channel published a report on collections for drones for the Russian military.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, the fight Usyk - Dubois ended in the 9th round, when the Briton missed a heavy blow to the head.
In the 5th round, the British boxer hit our compatriot below the belt. Usik 5 minutes came to himself, lying in the ring.
At the end of the meeting in the team Dubois said that they disagreed with the result and filed an appeal.
Usyk himself couldn't contain his emotions during the press conferences after he was presented with claims that his shorts were worn too high.
Note that the result of the fight Usyk - Dubois commented and Vasyl Lomachenko, but he did it superlaconically and in Russian.
