Watch: Oleksandr Usyk continues 200lb progress with yet another KO

WBN 02/09/2015

Ukrainian cruiserweight hope Oleksandr Usyk made it eight straight knockouts since turning professional with a third round stoppage of hard South African Jonny Muller in Kiev.

The 28 year-old, who won European, World and Olympic gold medals as an amateur, looks the business at the 200lb limit as he ploughs his way through some decent fighters, and to some, is nailed on to be a world champion in the near future.

Already a fringe WBO title holder, Usyk is on the fast-track to an opportunity at one of the top operators in the division and could conceivably be ready within the next twelve months on recent evidence.
