Oleksandr Gvozdyk Reveals Future Plans

Former light heavyweight world champion Oleksandr Gvozdyk has opened up about his plans for the future.

The Ukrainian fighter revealed that he unexpectedly decided to make a comeback.

"In 2019, I thought it was a good time to try myself in something other than boxing, trying to start my own business in Ukraine. But a lack of experience, plus the Russian invasion in Ukraine put a big cross on my plans. Without any understanding, what to do next, all of sudden I received an invitation from Canelo to be one of his sparring partners for his fight against Bivol."

Gvozdyk shared his ambitions of becoming a two-time world champion.

"I spent a whole camp with him, and was happy with my performance, and the idea of coming back came up automatically. I still have a lot to achieve in boxing. I am aiming to become a two-time world champion and would love to earn the right to fight against the division’s best, Artur Beterbiev and Dmitry Bivol," Bad Left Hook quotes Gvozdyk as saying.
