Former undisputed cruiserweight world champion Oleksandr Usyk (17-0, 13 KOs) does not feel any concern about the high volume workrate of his future opponent Dereck Chisora (32-9, 23 KOs), Boxing Scene reports.
"Normally I face this kind of plan, every fight. If you want to hit the target, you need to see the target, because he can throw as many punches as he can, but you need to land them into the target," Usyk said.
Speculations about Usyk's potential inability withstand a tough, physical fight at heavyweight were brought up by Chisora's manager David Haye.
Nevertheless, the Ukrainian fighter feels the amplitude of the upcoming bout.
"When I was an amateur, I was watching his fights as a heavyweight, with Klitschko, David Haye, and I was thinking 'wow', such great guys somewhere far away, and now I am going to box one of those great guys myself," he added.
As we reported earlier, the fight was scheduled to take place at the O2 arena in London on May 23. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic pushed it back to July.
