Review: 2014-12-13, pretty good finish between Oleksandr Usyk and Danie Venter but it is not enough to get three stars. The 2012 Olympic heavyweight gold medallist Oleksandr Usyk entered this fight with a professional boxing record of 5-0-0 (5 KOs=100%) and he is ranked as the No.25 cruiserweight in the world; he has fought three times in 2014 beating Daniel Bruwer in his last bout (=Usyk vs Bruwer).
His opponent, Danie Venter, has an official record of 19-6-0 (14 knockouts) and he entered as the No.19 in the same weight class, he suffered his last defeat in 2012 when he faced Thabiso Mchunu; since then he has won four consecutive fights.
