Carlos Takam, Oleksandr Usyk's next opponent (and the first one in the super heavyweight division) said he was eagerly waiting for the Ukrainian to recover from his injury so that he could finally fight him. The Cameroonian-French said this in his interview with The Express.
"I wish that he recovers well because I am waiting for him for that match and I know I'm going to win it. I'm going to knock him out. He's a very fast guy because he's not from this division, he's a good boxer and I respect that but he's never had a punch from a heavyweight guy, that's what I say. Usyk, I'm waiting for you in September!", he said.
Ukraine's undefeated boxer Oleksandr Usyk is to debut in the super heavyweight division in autumn; the fight was supposed to take place in May, but the Ukrainian suffered a bicep injury, and the bout was rescheduled to September.
