Former undisputed cruiserweight world champion Oleksandr Usyk does not seem faced prior to his second heavyweight fight against Derek Chisora. Moreover, the Ukrainian pugilist believes that he has what it takes to finish his opponent early, Sky Sports reports.
"Be ready to stand tall and you do not need to get [hit by] punches, then your chin will be alright. Every man has the same chin. You cannot work it out somehow in the gym. The shot should not be really hard to make a man fall down," Usyk said.
It was also noted that he expected nothing less but a challenging contest coming into the ring on Saturday.
"That is exactly what I am expecting of Chisora now - and that is what I have been preparing for," the Ukrainian boxer added.
As we reported earlier, Chisora intends to push the pace against Usyk starting from the first second of their bout.
"He is a novice at heavyweight but we know he can fight, so we are going to be pushing hard, chucking leather. We are not going to stop chucking leather. We are going to be on it. I am going to try [to push him for pace]. I will be all over him like a baby’s rash," he stated.
