  1. Another good fight from a very technical and competent boxer. Once again Usyk displayed his usual confidence and capabilities in front of a very articulated boxer and adequate rival. He is a very technical boxer who takes his time to analyze his adversaries before getting in full into the fight. Usyk was mainly right in this bout since Tashibo was a good counter puncher. He has master moves in the ring and able to shot punches from very different angles. A must to see his next fights.

  2. Time to step up. If Joshua’s signed to fight Wlad, Usyk needs to dare with Lebedev or one of the other CW monsters.
    He needs that competition to prove his talent.
    I’m looking forward to see him being tested.
