The absolute world champion in the heavyweight Alexander Usik (16-0, 12 KO’s) will hold the next fight against the world champion in the heavyweight WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight Anthony Joshua (22-0, 21 KO’s).
This was reported by the famous British promoter Frank Warren, who handles cases of Tyson fury. According to him, the next opponent will be Joshua Alexander Usik.
“Now I hear that the next opponent Joshua on April 13 will not Gillian white, and Oleksandr Usyk. I understand why they want a barb, because it is smaller in size and has such striking power,” – said Warren.
We will remind, after a victory over ex-champion Tony Bellew (30-1-3, 20 KO), the Tendril expressed the desire to move to the heavyweight division.
Oleksandr Usyk won early ex-champion of the WBC version of the British Tony Bellew (30-1-3, 20 KO).
In the eighth round Barbel powerful left-hand blow knocked Bellew, and protected so all of their titles.
At a press conference after the fight Alexander Usik said that first he needs to rest after a hard battle, and also shared plans for the future.

“I had to focus on each round. Bellew really is a dangerous fighter. I tried to calm themselves in the first four rounds. It was all good.
I had a really tough year. It was the most successful but the most difficult year. Now I think about how to spend time with the family.
The year was difficult psychologically and physically. The periods between the fights were too short, I never feel 100% ready. After the final battle with Murat by Gassieva I only had 30 days to recover. During training camp I was lying in bed looking at the ceiling, and I came up with the idea: “What am I doing here?”.
If I put a goal to become the undisputed champion in superteach? Of course. You need to set goals. If we don’t set goals – we will tracnem. We have set ourselves goals,” said Usyk.
As reported by the portal Znaia the Mustache made a Frank statement after the victory over Bellew.
