About the fact that, in the opinion of Ukrainian heavyweight Vladislav Sirenko, who recalled his sparring with champion Alexander Usik, the latter has a very weak a place that the “Gypsy King” can take advantage of, writes “NBN”, referring to the material of the National League of Professional Boxing of Ukraine.

Sirenko (invincible Ukrainian boxer in the heavyweight division, who put his career “on pause” “after 2021), who previously worked with Usik at his training base as a sparring partner, recalled that no one is able to withstand blows aimed at the body well – despite reinforced blocks of this part of the body, such hits remain very unpleasant and disorienting.

Usik’s ex-training partner emphasized:

It will be difficult for any fighter to withstand such a blow. Judging by Alexander’s fights, he really has this “Achilles heel” in the form of missed blows to the body.
