Southpaw Oleksandr Usyk (18-0-13 KO) of the Ukraine is a one of a kind fighter in more ways than one.
The former undisputed cruiserweight world champion is now attempting to do something very, very few have done in boxing history.
Go from becoming a cruiserweight champion up to heavyweight title glory.
The weight move has only ever been done successfully to world championship success by a very select few in the sport’s history.
Usyk as shown here however in this remarkable footage that he fears little:

Quite incredible stuff there in fairness.
It will take a bit of time for him to find his feet at heavyweight understandably.
A physical and mental transition.
Moreover, a division and almost different sport in of itself in the noble art.
Usyk’ precocious boxing brain, unique personality (crazy in a good way) and fearless streak should bode well in his campaign at heavyweight.
He last fought in a unanimous points decision win over Dereck Chisora late last year.
Fighting out of Oxnard, California, expect big things in the future at heavyweight from this gifted Ukrainian sweet science maestro.
