Ukrainian boxer Oleksandr Usyk intends to go to Russian-occupied Crimea together with the championship belts he won after defeating British boxer Anthony Joshua. He said this at a press conference.

“Belts need to wait to go home [to Crimea]. Of course, I want to see my coach, I want to see my godfather, sister, go to my gym. I want to show the belt to the coach, thank him for taking me to his section and training me to a high level. He taught me to box, defend, think. He made a man out of a boy,” Usyk said.

As reported earlier, on the night of September 26 in London in the main fight of the evening the Ukrainian boxer Oleksandr Usyk won over the British boxer Anthony Joshua and took his championship belts of WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO in super heavyweight.

"I want to win all four belts," Usyk commented on the victory over Anthony Joshua, after which he became the world heavyweight champion.
