It isn’t often the biggest character in an entire sport happens to be heavyweight champion and quiet possibly, one of the very best pure boxers of the current era.
Pound for pound.
Ukraine’s Alexander Usyk might not speak English that well yet but it is hard not to like him.
His energy and banter, while crucially, being one of the best in the world at his job, makes him already a big star.
From a pure boxing skill point of view he is surely one of the best in recent times.
For those unfamiliar with him some of his best moments from a comedy point of view here worth a watch:
On a serious note, a rematch next up with Anthony Joshua is what is in store next.
For now though, what a win for Usyk.
Lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury takes on former WBC champion Deontay Wilder later this month.
The winner of which no doubt will have a close eye on Usyk vs Joshua 2.
