Brook was humble in defeat, and honest in his assessment when talking to the WBO Champion, specifying that he (Bud) has very good timing, and a good deal of punching power – to where Crawford replied 🗣️ “I told you so” regarding the power.

After the fight, they showed their respects to each other, with Chisora treating Olek and his whole team to food/snacks, while Usyk autographed the gloves he wore in the ring for Chisora to have – Respect.
