Ukrainian heavyweight Alexander Usik (18-0, 13 KOs) told fans that April 1st is one of the most significant days in his life for him, since it was on this day that he came to the boxing section 19 years ago.
“In 2002, April 1, it was Wednesday, as I remember now. Exactly 19 years since I began to engage in this great sport – boxing. As I remember, it was Wednesday, I got up and went to training. I was joking, as they say. This sport has become an integral part of my life, and I still have a lot to achieve. I and my team have a lot of results to achieve, a lot of work, “Usik said on Instagram.
“Over the past 19 years, I have heard many times that this is not mine, that something will not work for me. I think that in relation to such people you need to become deaf, and listen only to those who have achieved something. want to do in your life – you must do it. And do not listen to those who say that you will not succeed. I wanted to quit what I started many times. But I understood that if I quit all this, I won’t I will be able to achieve success in another kind of activity. And by the way, despite the 1st of April, everything that I said is not a joke. “
