Ukrainian Won Boxing World Champion

On August 20, Oleksandr Usyk became the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO world champion

On August 20, in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia), a boxing championship was held between heavyweight boxers Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk and Briton Anthony Joshua.
During the duel of looks, the Ukrainian boxer sang the Ukrainian folk war song The red viburnum in the meadow which again, like 200 years ago, became the anthem of the resistance of the Ukrainian people.

Oleksandr Usyk defeated Anthony Joshua on points 115:113, and won the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight boxing title.

This is Usyk's second such victory: in 2021 at the World Heavyweight Boxing Championship and last year.

We remind you that the mayor of the city of Kyiv, Vitalii Klitschko, is also a multiple world heavyweight boxing champion.
