Ex-world champion in the heavyweight Russian Grigory Drozd spoke about the prospects of Alexander Usyk in the heavyweight division.
“He’s fine, but there are questions that he must answer all first and foremost to yourself. Here is his first fight in the heavyweight division. Everything is cool, cool, but I think that many professionals were questions, because the boxer was not at the top level.
Still, a good average fighter, but it’s not tops, about which all speak. He will fight with fury, with Wilder, with the big boys – I don’t know, is the question. I see Sasha is a favorite. He’s a very talented guy. Who says that he has no shot, I think they are deeply mistaken.
If you get a chance to hit he will hit, but it doesn’t fly headlong to knock out. Sasha is definitely a great prospect in the heavyweight division, but to say that he came up and kill all of the tops, I wouldn’t hurry,” said Drozd.
