Usyk's Trainer Expects Very Tough Fight With Marco Huck

Aleksandr Usyk’s trainer Sergey Vatamanyuk talks of great respect about Marco Huck before the Ali Trophy quarter-final clash at the Max Schmeling-Halle in Berlin, September 9.

How do you prepare for the fight against Huck?

“We try to understand what we need in that fight in order to win. We practise some things and we watch videos of Huck’s fights. It will for sure be a good fight for the fans. Huck has defended his title 13 times, ‘Sasha’ is a world champion.

We know that Huck never gives up, he always moves forward and tries to win. We will not underestimate Huck!”

Your fighter is seen as the favourite to win The Muhammad Ali Trophy. Do you agree?

“I don’t like to talk about who is the favourite in this tournament because this is the cruiserweight division and one punch can decide everything. I don’t like to talk about favorites.

But if you don’t believe in victory there is no sense taking part in the World Boxing Super Series. ‘Sasha’ wants to have all the four belts in the cruiserweight division and he wants the Muhammad Ali Trophy. There will be one guy with everything by the end of the tournament and ‘Sasha’ wants to be that guy.”

How is it to train Usyk?

“‘Sasha’ is very smart, he understands what he needs. He trains heard, he listens, he likes to learn. He trains hard in every camp and he tries to grow from fight to fight. If he gets the victory against Huck, we will concentrate on the next fight.”

Tickets for the premiere of the World Boxing Super Series September 9 at the Max-Schmeling-Halle are available at www.eventim.de and www.StubHub.de ?

Eh, he's just lowering expectations after Usyk underwhelmed in his last 2 fights. I think he'll get the stoppage without much difficulty.

I like usyk but not totally sold on him. His style is ok but not for the big boys. Huck,may be to old to take this one, but im not so sure usyk is the obvious winner of this tourney
