Surprising Reason Usyk Does Not Like Heavyweight: Considering Moving Back To Cruiserweight After Tyson Fury Rematch

Surprising Reason Usyk Does Not Like Heavyweight Considering Moving Back To Cruiserweight After Tyson Fury Rematch

Usyk recently did the impossible when he unified all the belts and became the undisputed heavyweight champion beating Tyson Fury.

The points win saw Usyk become one of the very few to go from cruiserweight to become champion at heavyweight.

It is extremely hard to do.

However Usyk is not a fan of the heavyweight division. The amount of eating he has to do to keep the weight on him is tiresome and difficult he says.

Speaking to the 3 Knockdown Podcast he said:

“I think after my rematch (with Tyson Fury) maybe go back down to cruiserweight. Maybe, maybe, maybe that’s my plan. Because when I started to prepare for my training camp, shop, all shops, I say, yeah! Because I’m eating every time. For me this is hard. I don’t like. Three times (eating heavily everyday). Cocktail, water, protein, bananas. Banana is good but not (eating them all the time).”

Surprising enough.

In that most enjoy going to heavyweight as they don’t have to make weight and can eat as much as they want.

However, not for Usyk.
