Usyk Reacts to Wilder's Criticism

Oleksandr Usyk, the holder of the WBA, WBO, and IBF heavyweight titles, responded to the comments made by former champion Deontay Wilder about his supposed fear of facing him in the ring.

Lately, the American boxer has been repeatedly accusing the Ukrainian of avoiding a match with him out of fear.

"It’s me, I am the most feared. Am I a boogeyman who scares his opponents? I don’t need to intimidate them at all – they do it to themselves. All people have fear, absolutely everyone. There is only no fear if you are a mad person. Both people who enter the ring are afraid, it’s normal," Usyk is quoted as saying by Boxing Social.
