Simmons Gets Title Opportunity Against Usyk

Stephen Simmons will be facing one of the toughest tests of his professional career next month when he travels to Kiev to fight for the WBO Inter-Continental cruiserweight title against current champion Ukrainian Olexsandr Usyk in Kiev.


The fight is scheduled to take place on Saturday 23rd April in the Sport Palace in Kiev.


Simmons´ last contest was in January where he comfortably beat Lithuanian Remigijus Ziausys over six rounds.


“I´m absolutely buzzing for this fight,” Simmons said “I can´t wait to get in there and cause an upset. I´ve been training hard and my weight is great so I´m raring to go.


I have been training at MGM Scotland and sparring is being scheduled by Gary Jacobs, we will heading south in the next couple of weeks.


It is going to be a hard fight but it´s a fight that will propel me to the next leveland just a step away from fighting for a world title.”
