On the night of October 13 in Chicago, Ukrainian boxer Oleskandr Usyk defeated 38-year-old American Chazz Witherspoon in a heavyweight debut, also known as the "Royal Division" (over 90.7 kg).
Witherspoon refused to continue the fight after round 7.
For Alexander Usyk, this is the 17th victory in 17 battles.
The debut of the Ukrainian boxer was planned for May 2019, in which he had to fight against Carlos Takam. However, due to the injury of the Ukrainian, the fight did not take place.
Alexander's next rival was Netherlands representative Tyron Spong, but he failed the doping test.
