#OleksandrUsyk (@Usykaa) will be moving up from cruiserweight to heavyweight soon, with the main goal of getting a fight with either #AnthonyJoshua, #DeontayWilder, or #TysonFury. Personally, I don't think #Usyk is too small to compete at the division:
1️⃣A supremely-talented #boxer, he's around 6'4" which makes him a big enough man to compete in the division, a similar height to #JosephParker.
2️⃣In this video, he fought #JoeJoyce right before turning pro in 2013 and won every second of the fight. Joyce is the same height as Anthony Joshua (6'6"). To note - this fight in the #WorldSeriesOfBoxing was a limit of 200lbs (91kg) and was for 5 x 3-minute rounds. BOTH have also improved since. Point is, Usyk has fought bigger opponents before and has excelled.
3️⃣His reach of 78" is longer than #AlexanderPovetkin, the same as #LuisOrtiz and is only 4" shorter than Wilder and AJ.
4️⃣His speed, footwork, combination/counterpunching and jab will be one of the best in the division.
5️⃣His chin will be tested with the heavies but hasn't let him down so far in his career.
He already beatin up on heavyweights.
