Oleksandr Usyk is a throwback to the glory days of Boxing. You know the days were the best wanted to fight the best, and they weren’t afraid of losing. Usyk, in less than 20 fights, has become a legend and is already one of the most accomplished boxers of this 21st century.

Road warrior

Usyk has no issue with fighting in the other fighter’s hometown, and he has proved that consistently. Oleksandr fought the tough Michael Hunter in the USA; he beat a very tough Krzystof Glowacki in Poland, Marco Huck in Germany, Mairis Briedis, Murat Gassiev in Russia, Tony Bellew in England, Derek Chisora in England, and of course, Anthony Joshua in England. Nobody around does what Usyk has done, at least not in the last decade. Hell, Roy Jones in his prime wasn’t headed to England to fight Benn or Eubank, and I guarantee you Money Mayweather would have never fought anywhere but Vegas during his career. This is what makes Usyk special. For lack of a better term, he dares to be great.

A rematch with Joshua

A rematch clause exists, and I am sure Joshua will enforce it, but what can he do differently to beat Usyk? Of course, the easy answer is attacking, but since Andy Ruiz knocked him out, he has been tentative and no longer looks like his heart is into Boxing. Usyk, on the other hand, as always be even better the next time, and I foresee Joshua ending the rematch on the canvas knocked out.

Wilder or Fury

With Boxing know days, the question is, would Fury or Wilder even fight him? I think Usyk beats Wilder easily as Wilder is nowhere the skill level of Usyk, and Usyk will tie him in knots and knock him out. However, the most intriguing fight of all is Usyk vs. Fury. Most people I see seem to think that Fury is too big and skilled. Fury is highly trained for a Heavyweight, but he is not as skilled as Usyk; very few are. If Fury attacks him, then it will be a tough fight for Usyk, but either way, I would never count Usyk out of any battle he’s in.

Remember this about Usyk in a day and age where belts are a dime a dozen. This man has won 8 out of the ten available belts in the Cruiserweight and heavyweight divisions. Usyk is exceptional, and if you don’t accept that, you are not a knowledgeable fan.
