After Usyk, the Olympic heavyweight gold medalist for Ukraine, won the World Boxing Super Series and unified all four pound titles in the final with a virtual shutout decision against Murat Gassiev on July 21 on Gassiev's turf in Moscow, Usyk defended all four belts with a sensational one-punch knockout of former world titlist Tony Bellew on Nov.
After that fight, many assumed Usyk12 KOsa year-old southpaw, would do what most other top cruiserweights have done: Move up to heavyweight.
And while that is definitely in the plans for Usyk, it just might not be next, according to co-promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Boxing. Lebedev23 KOs39, of Russia, vacated one of the cruiserweight belts that Usyk eventually won in the World Boxing Super Series and is coming off a one-sided round decision over Mike Wilson in November.
Lebedev is the most notable fighter in the division whom Usyk has not yet faced. Beterbiev13 KOs33, a two-time Russian Olympian fighting out of Montreal, has made one successful light heavyweight title defense. He would have to beat Joe Smith Jr.
If Usyk elects to move up to heavyweight, there also is likely to be big business waiting for him in that division. Hearn envisions Usyk eventually challenging three-belt world titlist Anthony Joshua21 KOswhom Hearn also promotes, in a major fight.
But Usyk, who also has said his goal is to eventually fight for a heavyweight world title, would fight at least one heavyweight first, and it could come against one of the top contenders in the division.
In his most recent fight, Povetkin24 KOs39, of Russia, suffered his first loss in five years when Joshua knocked him out in the seventh round of their heavyweight world title fight. Ortiz26 KOsa year-old Cuban defector who fights out of Miami, has won two fights in a row since he was knocked out in the 10th round challenging world titlist Deontay Wilder in March in one of the best fights of Krassyuk said there was a "70 percent chance" that Usyk would fight one of them in his next contest at heavyweight, possibly as soon as March.By Maria Wang, Full-time UST MBA class of The entire planet will be celebrating for the London Olympic Games in a few days.
