Olexander Usyk vs. Daniel Bruwer for WBO I/C on 10/4

By Dmitry Mikhalchuk and Alexey Sukachev

Highly regarded Ukrainian cruiserweight Olexander Usyk (4-0, 4 KOs), a 2011 world amateur champion and 2012 Olympic gold medalist in the heavyweight division, will be supposedly tested for the first time in his short career on October 4 at Arena Lviv in Lviv, Ukraine, where he takes on hard-hitting South African veteran Daniel Bruwer (24-5-1, 21 KOs) in a bid for a vacant WBO I/C 200lb title.

In the main event of the evening, local hero and ex-WBA light welterweight champion Andriy Kotelnik (31-4-1, 13 KOs) will conduct his farewell fight in front of a roaring partisan crowd. Inter will televise this event.
