Oleksandr Usyk the Road Warrior

FB_IMG_1542587575786

Undisputed Champion Oleksandr Usyk (Ukraine) has put together quite the campaign over the last few years, in particular the last 2 years especially. Within a 7 fight span, he has had 5 high-level fights against 5 of the 8 best fighters in what is a loaded Cruiserweight division and has defeated them all. Not only did he defeat them, but he went to each of their backyards to do so, taking on the risk of possible hometown decisions, and rolling the dice. Because of that, he has earned the moniker of being nicknamed ‘the Road Warrior’, which is also paying homage to the great Azumah Nelson who carried that as one of his prime nicknames a couple decades prior.
