Croatian boxer Philip Hrgovich (15-0, 12 KOs) said what he thinks about the WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs).
“Usyk is a great fighter, but at the same time he is a warrior. He is not just a technical, tactically competent boxer, but also a warrior. Usyk gives 100 percent, throws a lot of punches. He is really strong psychologically.
Usyk is a warrior, there is no doubt about that. Anthony Joshua had a good ninth round and I think that’s the only round he did well. Joshua went forward, throwing body shots. Even if the punches were blocking, Joshua made Usyk lose his balance. So Anthony should fight in all rounds like in the ninth. But we have what we have. I hope I will enter the ring with Usyk and show how to fight, ”the Croat said in an interview with the TRU SCHOOL SPORTS YouTube channel.
Note that Hrgovic is a mandatory contender for the IBF title fight.
