I’ve won my last eight fights and I really feel that I’ve been waiting in the wings for a huge opportunity like this and I am going to put every ounce of myself into the fight on this massive stage.
Oleksandr is stepping up to heavyweight – and he’s going to find out that it’s a totally different game.

Oskar Gundersen
Who will win: Usyk or Witherspoon?

Finally, the name of the next rival Oleksandr Usyk is announced. Usyk spent his last fight almost a year ago - he defeated Briton Tony Bellew by technical knockout.
Oleksandr is younger and he is a very uncomfortable left-hander, whose work style is difficult to adapt to, but this is his first fight in heavyweight and it is not known how well his injured biceps healed.

Nevertheless, I think that Usyk’s skill level is much higher, he will be able to impose his fighting style on Witherspoon, shoot him with jabs at a distance, constantly move, not allowing him to aim for a knockout blow, and ultimately win by technical knockout.
