"This is just the beginning": Usyk responded to the question about the end of his career
Ukrainian super heavyweight boxer Oleksandr Usyk (20-0-0, 13 KOs) will not end his career after defeating Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) in a fight for the title of absolute world champion. Our compatriot believes that the fight with the Gypsy King will take place, but his path in the sport is not yet complete.
Usyk said this to the website of the BBC television corporation on the eve of the confrontation with the British Daniel Dubois (19-1, 18 KOs) on August 26. According to the native of Simferopol, he is well aware that he has not so many fights left in his professional career, but the fight against Fury will not be its finale.
"No, this is not the final point. I'm 36, this is just the beginning. I started boxing when I was 15 years old. Now it's just the beginning. I realize that I don't have many years left in boxing and I don't want to spend a lot of time in boxing. I want to take my kids to school and everything," Usyk said.
The Ukrainian and the Briton will fight in Wroclaw, Poland. The Briton made a bold promise on the eve of the fight. In case of victory over his opponent, the Ukrainian hopes to fight for the title of absolute world champion with Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs), whom Usyk recently complimented. Tyson himself unexpectedly calmly spoke about Oleksandr and the disruption of the fight on April 26.
