Oleksandr Usyk knocked out Tony Bellew and defended all their belts
“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 Znayu became known, when Usyk will defend the titles.
