Former light heavyweight world champion, Oleksandr Gvozdyk, has unveiled the date of his forthcoming bout. According to Gvozdyk, the Ukrainian boxer, he is slated to step into the ring on September 30, undercarding the Alvarez versus Charlo fight. At present, a tentative opponent has been lined up, but without a signed contract, their identity remains under wraps. However, Gvozdyk hinted it would be a recognizable figure—an ex-world champion.
When queried about his current form in comparison to his prime, particularly when he defeated Adonis Stevenson, Gvozdyk responded, "It's a challenging question. I believe in terms of intellectual aspects, how I perceive and respect everything, I am at my most knowledgeable now due to the experience I've gathered."
The Ukrainian boxer underlined that his primary objective for the imminent fight is to be in optimal physical condition. He acknowledged that he is yet to reach the desired level of physical fitness but remained confident that he would be in top form by the time of the match.
It's worth noting that in May of this year, Oleksandr Gvozdyk successfully completed his last bout in the undercard of Canelo versus Ryder, securing an early victory against Ricards Bolotniks. Now, he looks forward to a new challenge in September, eager to demonstrate his skills and rejuvenated form in one of the year's most eagerly anticipated boxing events.
