Mandatory contender for the WBO world heavyweight title Alexander Usyk said that he agreed to a reduction in the fee for the fight with Derek Chisora, because he did not want too long downtime in his career. According to the Ukrainian, money has never played a key role for him.
“For me, money is not the main thing. I do not prioritize billions, a lot of money. If they are, then I do not mind. You just have to be ready for it.
My feelings are such that I just needed a fight, even if I minus. It is clear that this is really bad, because my family and my team have a minus. I have a large team that feeds on this. All minus, not only me. But I needed a fight, because a simple one is worse than minus a couple of million dollars. The training camp cost $ 50,000, maybe a little more. I have not gone to zero, I have a job, “- said Alexander Usik in an interview with the YouTube channel” Rumors are going “.
We will remind, Usyk also told where he invests his money.
