Usyk vs Dubois: Key Takeaways from the Press Conference

On July 10th, Warsaw, Poland, played host to the initial press conference of the upcoming match between Ukrainian boxing sensation and reigning IBF, WBA Super, and WBO world champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs), and his challenger, Britain's Daniel Dubois (19-1, 18 KOs).

Alex Krassyuk, the influential Ukrainian boxing promoter and CEO of K2 Promotions Ukraine, inaugurated the press conference by reflecting on his proposition to his peer Andrzej Wasilewski, about staging a monumental event in Poland. Wasilewski humorously termed this idea as "crazy", yet, he not only backed it but also contributed enthusiastically to turning this audacious plan into reality.

The mood was electric as luminaries such as Alex Krassyuk, Egis Klimas, Oleksandr Usyk, Sergey Lapin, and British boxer Daniel Dubois, alongside his trainer Don Charles, took to the stage. The Marriott Hotel's conference hall was brimming with anticipation, infused with the palpable buzz that comes with a major sporting event on the horizon.
