Earlier, World Boxing Association (WBA) obliged Oleksandr Usyk to protect his title against the Russian Denis Lebedev.
As it was reported earlier, Russian boxer Alexander Povetkin had to be Usyk’s first opponent in the heavyweight category. Yet, the parties have not agreed. There were also rumors that Usyk might fight with Robert Helenius.
