Former world heavyweight champion and now the mayor of Kiev Vitaly Klitschko is confident that Oleksandr Usik is a patriot of Ukraine.
“Alexander Usik is on a contract with K2 Promotions. We took it upon ourselves to make him the best athlete. Much depends on the athlete, the promoters and the team. Despite the fact that there is only one boxer in the ring, a big team works for him to show results.
We are very happy for Oleksandr, for his achievements and we are doing everything so that he continues to show good fights, win and raise the Ukrainian flag.
Who was I rooting for in the Usyk – Chisora battle? Such a question … I am generally at a loss, because asking who I was rooting for – for Chisora or Usik … Our society is so politicized, many things are trying to stick. Maybe someone doesn’t like that he attends church or that he said something wrong. It could be. But I know Alexander and I can say that he is a patriot. He is the person who associates himself with Ukraine, and he has no other thoughts on this matter. And we must thank Alexander, wherever he is, “said Vitali Klitschko on the air of the NASH TV channel.
