Vyacheslav Kyrylenko, Ukraine’s Vice-Prime Minister, commented the fight of Oleksandr Usyk and Murat Gassiev in Russia on Facebook.

“No doubts, Usyk is a cool boxer. But, if such events with Ukrainians take place in Moscow, nobody in the world will believe in Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. Only in our “friendship”. And it is serious,” he wrote.

After Oleksandr Usyk won the World Boxing Super Series, The Ring improved his position in the world best boxers ranking regardless of the weight category.
