Kownacki ready to meet Usyk
Polish heavyweight Adam Kownacki (18-0, 14 KOs) said that he would not mind the meeting with the undisputed cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk, whose transition to the heavyweight division is likely for this year.
“Fight with Usyk? Why not? Now it's just talk and nothing serious. But still, Usyk is vulnerable. He does not like pressure, which could be seen in the fight with Tony Bellew, it was also noticeable in the fight with Mairis Briedis. Usyk has fantastic endurance, but less fantastic defense. In general, the essence of our sport is to check ourselves with the best,” Kownacki said.
On January 26, Kownacki will have a duel with the former world title challenger Gerald Washington. In the record of the Pole there are victories over the former champion Charles Martin and former title contender Arthur Szpilka.
