Aside from being one of the most colorful characters in boxing, Oleksandr Usyk is without a doubt one of the best pound for pound fighters on the planet

The Ukrainian cleaned up the heavyweight division in a devastating fashion, before knocking out Tony Bellew in Manchester and stopping Chazz Witherspoon in his professional heavyweight debut

But Usyk will face his toughest test yet when he steps into the ring with veteran Derek Chisora ​​at Wembley this Saturday night

While his professional record might just say a heavyweight fight, the 33-year-old has spent the majority of his amateur career fighting much taller men

At the 2011 World Amateur Boxing Championships, he won the heavyweight gold medal and won gold at the London 2012 Olympics to finish with 355 wins and just 15 losses

Before entering the paid ranks, he also helped the Ukraine team Otamens to finish second in the 2013 World Series of Boxing by winning their six fights in the heavyweight division

Prior to winning a silver medal at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Joyce was part of the British Lionhearts team and faced the irrepressible Usyk

Joyce came under close scrutiny by the smooth southpaw and ate a few heavy punches, although he managed to land several of his own

Speaking as Ukraine qualified for the final, Usyk said: “Personally I enjoyed my performance against Medzhidov It was a tough fight and I think I did well

« He was my toughest opponent, but I have to say that Joyce of the Lionhearts turned out to be a badass as well »
