"I liked Usyk more in cruiserweight, because of his movements and some other things. As a heavyweight, he is also good, but in the first heavyweight, he looked better. But this is all just me and my opinion.

I respect Usyk as a fighter and a person. I've heard a lot of good things about him. I have never heard any negative statements about him, so I can judge Usyk only from the good side.

Therefore, I have only positive impressions about him. When he's ready, I won't waste time," Wilder said.

In his last fight for the WBA/WBO/IBF/IBO World Heavyweight Championship, Oleksandr Usyk defeated Anthony Joshua. According to the results of all twelve rounds, Alexander defeated Joshua by a separate decision of the judges: 115-113, 116-112, and 113-115.
