As a child I dreamed that I would become a famous football player, – Alexander Usik

Contender for the WBO title in the heavyweight Alexander Usik (17-0, 13 KO’s) admitted that as a child dreamed of becoming a famous footballer and play at the big stadiums.

About this Ukrainian boxer said in an interview with Arthur Mkhitaryan.

I never thought that I would become a professional boxer, and thought I would be a famous football player. I played football, told my mom that buying a helicopter. Dreamed of a big stadium, thought about it. But I lived in the village and believed that it is impossible.

Last thing I want is every day to go to work at the plant. I told mom: “I don’t want to work, as you wait for this month salary, from paycheck to paycheck to work”. Maybe it’s rude then sounded,” said Usyk.

Recall the last match of the Tendril held against the American Chazza Witherspoon 13 Oct 2019. The fight was over after the seventh round, the opponent of the Ukrainian refused to continue.
