Most likely, the next opponent of Alexander will be a Cameroonian boxer Carlos Takam. Mustache promoter Eddie Hearn announced the potential dates of the next fight of the Ukrainian – 17 or 25 may.
Guy (Takam, – Спорт24) is very decent. In almost all versions of it in the top. He’s moving, not static. In the battle with Joshua he is a very good move. Such opponents make for very good fights. At this point, we are reviewing his fights, what he’s doing, and accumulating his own. But I absolutely do not think about fight as in previous preparations. For me, the task is to carry out his training camp well and fulfill the task that puts in front of me team
said Usyk in the broadcast channel “inter”.
For a super heavyweight Ushiku need to gain more weight and Alexander decided to stay at 98 lbs.
I have two months to almost work. First we did the heavy lifting, and continue to do it. Then he moved a little Boxing, but, nevertheless, elements of weightlifting are with us in training camp. Here the sand was added. There are new things to do. While I won’t say. It is necessary to alter the weight in the right muscles, in the normal, working. We don’t need much, because falling coefficient of useful action, maybe the speed will slow down. We do not need. We need the same mobility, the same efficiency. So I think 98 kg for a start will be enough
