Reports have come out of P4P star and Heavyweight contender ♛🥇🇺🇦Oleksandr Usyk (17-0-0, 13KO👊) suffering a left elbow injury during sparring. The injury isn’t serious enough to where his previously targeted March 28th bout with rugged perennial contender 🇿🇼🇬🇧Dereck “War” Chisora (32-9-0, 23KO👊) would have to be shelved, but apparently it is bad enough that his Promoter Eddie Hearn has indicated that the bout will be pushed back until May or even a month or two extra down the road, of course depending on the recovery progression of Usyk’s elbow.
