Oleksandr Usyk, the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world from Ukraine shared some of his plans for the future with the press. He said this in a chat with USYK17 Youtube channel.
'I can't tell you when I'm going to fight again. I'd like to have a little rest; but I guess I'll fight. Something tells me I've got to do this. There's no other way to conquer the superheavyweight division, the recognition of people and fame in other countries... I'll stay in England for another three fights, to say at least - maybe four or five. It depends on who the opponent would be. The bouts could take place in England or the U.S. For the time being, I'm not saying I decided to move on to the super heavyweight. I'll need to talk to the best, but it's up to me anyway. In that case, it won't be necessary to lose any weight', Usyk said.
Previously, Usyk rose up in the ranking of world best boxers regardless the weight class, The Ring magazine reported.
The Ukrainian went up in the list of the best after the impressive fight with Tony Bellew in Manchester, where Usyk retained his champion belts.
