Boxing World Champion Oleksandr Usyk has revealed some spine-chilling details about the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Usyk, who recently left Ukraine, noted in an interview with Profiboxing that the Russian invaders shot at his house and dragged his neighbors away. 

“I know they shot at our house, broke down the gate, and dragged away some of our neighbors. But I don’t know what it looks like there now. We can’t get in touch with anyone. It’s terrible when yours run to hide in the basement at every rustle,” he said.

Earlier, a long list of athletes had opened up about the situation in Ukraine. Usyk also went on to address the picture of him holding a rifle.

“I may have picked up a gun, but that doesn’t mean I would use it,” he added.

Usyk is expected to fight Anthony Joshua next and it was this fight that made him leave Ukraine via Poland.

“I didn’t think for a moment that I would stay there. This fight will be special for me in that respect,” the Ukrainian boxer added.

A former Olympic Gold Medallist, Usyk currently holds a professional boxing record of 19-0 to his name and had secured a win over Anthony Joshua in his last bout.

Joshua, on the other hand, is 24-2 in his professional boxing career with his one loss coming against Usyk while his second loss came against Andy Ruiz. Joshua, however, had avenged the loss against Ruiz immediately in the rematch which makes the match with Usyk more interesting.
