Ukrainian boxer Alexander Usik (16-0, 12 KO) will have a debut fight at heavyweight against the French-Cameroonian Carlos Takama (36-5-1, 28 KO), said the Ukrainian promoter Eddie Hearn.
“The battle with Takuma can be considered consistent. It remains only to determine DAZN on the exact date of the match.
First, we wanted to organize this fight may 18, but this day will be Wilder, and we would not want the intersection of these two shows. Either 17 or 25 may. Later all, we decide this by Monday. Anyway, the next battle of the Mustache will host the heavyweight title against Carlos Takama,” said Eddie Hearn.
Fight the Tendril – Takam can take place on 18 may but on this day also is scheduled to fight Deontay Wilder vs Dominique Brizil.
Interestingly, 25 of may – a symbolic date in the world of Boxing. On this day in 1965, the rematch for the world title in the heavyweight division between the 23-year-old American, Mohammed Ali and his 33-year-old compatriot Sonny Liston. The legendary Ali, with whom the manner of bakirovna now compare Moustache, then won by knockout in the first round.
Therefore, if Alexander will fight on may 25, for him, this fight will be special to me because Muhammad Ali is for the Ukrainian one of the most beloved boxers, with which he takes the example.
