Boxing: Oleksandr Usyk vs Chazz Witherspoon

| |










Usyk with 97.5 kilos only 5 kilos heavier than the cruiserweight

The heavyweight journey of Oleksandr Usyk has officially begun.

The Fighter of the Year 2018, the unified world cruiserweight champion, weighed only five kilos more for his official heavyweight debut than his cruiserweight bouts.  Usyk looked but well-proportioned and optimally trained.  Usyk meets Chazz Witherspoon tomorrow evening, who hit 110 kilos, which is the heaviest weight in his career.  Withersoon looked the same as imagining a substitute opponent.

The scheduled 12-round non-title fight will be televised live from Saturday night to Sunday morning, live from the sold-out Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Illinois, at 2:00 am DAZN.
