Oleksandr Usyk Children
Oleksandr Usyk and his wife Yekaterina have three children together. Their names are Kyrylo, Mykhalio, and Yelizaveta.
Usyk and his small family were forced to evacuate their house in Vorzel, Bucha, as Vladimir Putin’s army overran the area.
Oleksandr Usyk Career
On 4 October 2014, Usyk earned his first championship after defeating South African boxer Daniel Bruwer through seventh-round technical knockout (TKO) for the interim WBO Inter-Continental cruiserweight title.
Usyk won gold medals in the heavyweight division as an amateur at the 2011 World Championships and the 2012 Olympics. In 2018, he won the undisputed cruiserweight championship in his 15th professional bout after turning professional in 2013.
He won three of his titles at the inaugural World Boxing Super Series, including the Muhammad Ali Trophy, The Ring magazine, and lineal cruiserweight crowns. Usyk was chosen the 2018 Fighter of the Year by Sports Illustrated, ESPN, The Ring, and the Boxing Writers Association of America for his accomplishments (BWAA).
After Jermain Taylor, Bernard Hopkins, and Terence Crawford, Usyk became the fourth male boxer in history to hold the WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO titles at the same time in 2018. He was the first undisputed Ukrainian champion.
He is remarkable for the speed with which he accomplished his goals, winning his first world title in his tenth fight and becoming the undisputed champion of his weight class by his fifteenth.
Usyk renounced his cruiserweight belts in order to compete at heavyweight in 2019. He has defeated five current or past world champions in sixteen fights until that point.
