Terence Crawford Holds High Esteem for Usyk: "A Remarkable Fighter from Ukraine"

Terence Crawford, the reigning world champion across three weight divisions (40-0, 31 KO), has shared his perspective on the recent cancellation of the highly anticipated bout between heavyweight world champions from different versions: Oleksandr Usyk of Ukraine (20-0, 13 KO) and Britain's Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KO).

"I believe the fight's cancellation is rooted in business matters. Usyk is an exceptional fighter; he has achieved substantial success in boxing, and failing to show him due respect would be unjust. Who bears responsibility for the fight's postponement? An excellent question. It is imperative that such contests are held to cleanse the sport of boxing and establish a sole champion in each division," declared Crawford.
