Oleksandr Usyk, the world’s absolute champion in heavyweight division believes that next year, Ukraine will have another owner of all belts in one weight category, as VideoBoxing reported.

'People should estimate their own performances, but not Vasyl’s. Indeed, he raised the bar. In his fight with Pedraza, as far as I’ve seen, Vasyl was adapting to Pedraza’s style and hit a few times, while Pedraza was changing his position. Vasya was preparing to the left-handed person. Of course, he can adapt as he is a top-level athlete. Vasya had to perform so many actions to attack; but the fight went great. Therefore, in my opinion, Vasya can go up in the weight category. Does he need this right now? He has just won another belt. Next year, he might collect all of them,' Usyk said.
