Post-Fight Quotes

  • "I was trying to control myself in the first rounds, to control my boxing rather than just fighting. I had the most difficult year in my life, now I want to relax and spend time with my family and after that I will think about the future. We need to put goals in front of us and move towards them," Oleksandr Usyk said.
  • "I tried to go for it because I thought I was behind. He's a brilliant fighter, he's hard to pin down. I fought the very, very best, and he's just better than me. Usyk is pound-for-pound material, the best I've ever fought. Anyone who fights him is in trouble. That's definitely the end [of my career]," Tony Bellew said.
  • "With [Matchroom Sport promoter] Eddie Hearn we can do great things in boxing. Usyk definitely needs to fight Anthony Joshua," said Alexander Krassyuk, of K2 Promotions, which co-promotes Usyk with Matchroom Sport.
