Usyk Prepares For Title Shot In Bukovel

Bukovel, Ukraine: Undefeated #1 Ranked Cruiserweight Contender Oleksandr Usyk, (9-0-0, 9KO’s), is deep in to his training in the beautiful city of Bukovel, Ukraine for his world title showdown with WBO Cruiserweight World Champion Krzystof Glowacki, (26-0-0, 16KO’s) set for Saturday, September 17, 2016 at the Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland.


Gold Medalist for Ukraine in the 2012 Olympics in London, England, the 29-year-old Usyk, promoted by K2 Promotions Ukraine, is looking to become the fastest world champion in cruiserweight division history in his 10th professional fight. The record is currently held

by boxing legend Evander Holyfield who captured the world title in his 12th fight against Dwight Muhammed Qawi in 1986.


“I feel terrific and I’m completely focused on winning the world championship on September 17th,” said Usyk. “This was my next goal after winning the Gold Medal in 2012.”


Usyk is coming off his career best victory, a seventh round stoppage of Pedro Rodriguez on December 12, 2015 in Kiev, Ukraine.


Glowacki won a 12-round unanimous decision over Steve Cunningham on April 16, 2016 in

Brooklyn, New York.
