Boxing

Mandatory contender for the WBO heavyweight title Alexander Usyk in an interview with his YouTube channel USYK17 said that the fight against Derek Chisora ​​on October 31, which he won not without difficulties on points, was on the verge of collapse.

“Just before October 31, I had several explosions in training. Something hurt, for example, there was an elbow injury. The fight might not take place … There were emotional explosions during training. The coaches acted as lightning rods, took over this surge. They were silent, looked, smiled. I continued: “Are you smiling? Is it funny? And I’m not funny at all! ” Then he came up, hugged, kissed everyone. I say: “Guys, I’m sorry, I got excited.” They say: “Yes, it was cool. It’s a pity, they didn’t write it down, ”said Alexander Usik.
