The team holds three belts according to the WBA, WBO and IBF versions Oleksandr Usyk said that they have a plan to defeat the WBC heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury.
In August 2022, Oleksandr won against Anthony Joshua for the second time. This allowed the Ukrainian to defend the WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight championship belts. 2023 год – станет для Усика решающим в его карьере, ведь он встретится с обладателем титула WBC.
Although the fight has yet to be announced, the pair are expected to meet in the first half of 2023, and the excitement was further heightened earlier this month when Fury and Usyk went head-to-head following Fury's win over Derek Chisora.
Usyk and his team were ringside at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on an early scouting mission. Team director Serhiy Lapin believes that there are places that can be used.
"We came to London to watch Fury and Derek Chisora. We watched Fury up close at ringside with great interest. Our team covered many interesting moments from this fight," Lapin told Vegas Insider.
Lapin talked about many subtleties and details that viewers cannot see through their screens. For example, the work of the team, the relationship between the boxer and his coach, and whether the boxer follows the coach's instructions or not, and of course about the weak points.
"After we saw Fury alive, our team is even more confident that Usyk will win, become undisputed and bring the WBC green belt home to Ukraine. The threat that Fury represents is no bigger or stronger than Anthony Joshua. We know how it ended for Anthony. We are very confident that we can beat Fury", - said Lapin.
