Oleksandr Usyk, Olympic Champion, is Heading To K2

By Dmitry Mikhalchuk

Contrary to widespread reports that had him going elsewhere, 2012 Olympic gold medal winner Oleksandr Usyk is heading to K2 Promotions. A press conference is scheduled for Wednesday in Kiev, where the heavyweight from Ukraine will be present, along with WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko, and the CEO of K2 Promotions Ukraine Alexander Krasiuk, will be present to make the announcement. Usyk also won the 2011 World Amateur Championships.

I thought he already signed with Top Rank? Either way great move for Usyk. I think Lomachenko should of signed with K2 as well. K2 is the ideal promoter for both of them, IMO. Top Rank isn't bad for Lomachenko,…
