Ukrainian former boxing world champion Wladimir Klitschko is proud of what his countryman Oleksandr Usyk accomplished this past weekend.

Usyk defeated Tyson Fury, who beat Klitschko back in 2015, to become a undisputed heavyweight champion.

“In the ninth round, Oleksandr, he turned it from zero to 100, all of a sudden. That was unbelievable. I’m surprised that Tyson Fury got up, actually, and continued to fight until end of it. Respect to him. But Oleksandr showed once again that with technique, you can make much more and get much further in boxing than just with power,” Klitschko said.

“He has the power of the man, but his power is his heart, his belief, and that he’s Ukrainian. I’m really proud tonight of the winner of Oleksandr Usyk and really proud to be Ukrainian.”
