Usyk for the last belt

Usyk for the last belt

The highly anticipated showdown between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury is fast approaching. Set to take place on May 18 at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, this bout will determine whether Usyk can secure the final belt missing from his impressive record.

As the headlining event of the Riyadh Season’s Ring Of Fire program, Usyk is poised to make history by becoming the first heavyweight in 25 years to hold all division belts. It’s a remarkable journey for the Ukrainian, who once harbored dreams of playing soccer before transitioning to the world of boxing.

Honing his skills with determination and talent, Usyk quickly rose through the ranks, earning a spot on Ukraine’s national team and achieving Olympic success in 2012. With an amateur record boasting 335 wins and 15 losses, Usyk’s transition to the professional arena under the guidance of the Klitschko brothers was seamless.

His victories in the cruiserweight division, culminating in the undisputed championship in 2018, solidified Usyk’s status as a boxing force to be reckoned with. Moving up to the heavyweight division in 2019, he continued to dominate his opponents, claiming multiple world titles and remaining undefeated in 21 fights.

Now, at 37 years old, Usyk stands on the brink of greatness alongside Ukraine’s legendary boxing figures like the Klitschko brothers and Vasiliy Lomachenko. With one more victory, he will solidify his place among the heavyweight greats of all time.
