Oleksandr Usyk forever put an end to whose Crimea it is

It should be noted that the community has recently criticized Usyk a lot regarding his comments about Crimea occupied by Russia, he has repeatedly avoided the question of the peninsula's territorial affiliation, as if afraid to call Crimea a part of Ukraine.

However, after the rematch, the Ukrainian, who is a native of Simferopol, said once and for all who owns his city. So, one of the fans shouted "Simferopol" several times from the stands, to which Sashko first asked to pronounce the city again, and then answered "Ukraine".

"Ukrainians are indomitable. Thank you, Usyk, for your indomitability, for the faith and hope you gave us. An example for everyone. That's how they are, the Simferopol boys - invincible," Rizatdinova wrote on her Instagram.

In the rematch, which took place in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia), Usyk defeated Joshua by split decision: 113-115, 115-113, 116-112. Thus, the Ukrainian defended all the titles he took from the Briton in London last year.
