Alex Krassyuk, promoter of the WBA, WBO, and IBF super heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk, has outlined plans for a bout against WBA mandatory contender, Daniel Dubois. He anticipates that the match could be scheduled for early August in Wroclaw, a Polish city.
Krassyuk expressed their intent to host the fight in Wroclaw is driven by the enthusiasm of the local municipal authorities and the city's mayor. The plan is to hold the fight at the football stadium, a venue previously used for the bout between Vitaliy Klitschko and Tomasz Adamek in September 2011. More than just staging a sports event, Krassyuk emphasized their ambition to organize a grand festival encompassing charity initiatives aimed at supporting Ukrainians.
Krassyuk acknowledged that approximately 3 million Ukrainians reside in Poland, and hundreds of thousands live in neighboring European nations. Oleksandr Usyk hasn't fought in Ukraine since 2015, and hosting a bout in Wroclaw will afford him the chance to compete as a domestic boxer. Krassyuk reminded that Usyk clinched his first championship title in Poland back in 2016.
