Usyk Returns on May 31 in Odessa, Faces Cesar Crenz

By Alexey Sukachev

2012 Olympic heavyweight gold medalist and 2011 World champion Olexander Usyk (3-0, 3 KOs), fresh off his dominant stoppage of Ben Nsafoah on April 26, is coming back to the squared circle just a month after. Usyk, a protégé of K2 Promotions, will headline a local show in the southern Ukrainian seaport of Odessa, the center of the heated street clashes between pro-Russian and pro-Ukrainian activists and enforcers just a couple of weeks ago.

On May 31 in Odessa Palace of Sports, Usyk will take on lanky (6’5’’) Argentinean cruiserweight Cesar David Crenz (21-8, 13 KOs), nicknamed El Ruso.

In a co-feature, undefeated light middleweight prospect Olexander Spyrko (16-0, 8 KOs) will be seen in a minor title fight for the WBO International 154lb title. Several well-known fighters will be featured in the undercard, including comebacking once-defeated WBC #8 cruiserweight Dmytro Kucher (21-1, 15 KOs) and unbeaten prospects Umar Salamov (10-0, 9 KOs) and Mishiko Beselia (6-0, 3 KOs).
