A former cruiserweight champion, Usyk is 18-0 as a professional boxer. He had a successful start to his heavyweight journey against Dereck Chisora in October 2020 and earned the WBO mandatory spot. Although he was scheduled to meet Joe Joyce for an Interim title, the Ukrainian star is now straight on his way for a world title fight.
Hence, the unbeaten elite might take over the entire heavyweight division soon. On winning against Joshua, Usyk would have the WBO, WBA, IBF, and IBO heavyweight titles. Hence, it would also allow him to challenge either Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder. As he is now in a critical phase of his boxing career, Usyk’s charismatic persona has helped him become a star.
