Photos: Alexander Usyk Announces His Deal With K2

Alexander Usyk: “It is vitally important for me to debut in Ukraine. I visited the USA and UK, but K2 offered me the best option. I am happy about that and will proudly represent it sharing my success with my compatriots. I will come to America soon, but to pick up the champion belts”.

Vitalii Klitschko: I am convinced that Ukrainian boxing fans will enjoy his charisma and boxing skills for a long time. We keep our fists for hearing the Ukrainian anthem worldwide in the nearest future while Alexander would be disputing the world title. I am sure that his talent, ardor and purposefulness will easily make it happen.

Alexander Krassyuk: This is the biggest signing for K2 within its history with the most talented and bright prospect in heavyweight. Alexander was born the same day with Muhammad Ali and this is not the coincidence. With his skills and experience we expect a very impetuous launch of his career and  within a couple of years Usyk will gain the right to fight for the world title.

[QUOTE=Mikhnienko;13781941]Someone needs to tell [B][I]Oleksandr[/I][/B] that there are no belts in America at CW or HW so he doesn't have to bother. His debut is Nov 9th[/QUOTE] So true. [IMG][/IMG]

Great signing! I know now usyk and vasyl are tight and I dont know if usyk will conti ue to train with anatoly but its time he steps out onto his own. He can't be with vasyl all the time.…

[QUOTE=King-;13781848]Great signing for K2, and great choice for a promoter by Usyk. Very exciting fighter who is going to be a champion someday, IMO.[/QUOTE] Completely agree. He was very impressive during the Olympics. His dancing wasn't bad either, lol!
