Oleksandr Usyk is a Ukrainian professional boxer who is the undisputed cruiserweight champion, having held the WBO title since 2016, the WBC title since 2017, the IBF title since 2018, and the WBA (Super) title since 2018. He is the first cruiserweight in history to hold all four major world titles simultaneously, and the first boxer since Bernard Hopkins in 2004 to hold all four major titles in a single weight class.

Usyk has been on a roll since turning professional in 2013, winning all 16 of his fights and becoming the undisputed cruiserweight champion in 2018. He has since defended his titles four times, most recently against Dereck Chisora in October 2020.

Now, Usyk is looking for his next opponent, and it appears that he has already lined up his next fight. According to reports, Usyk is set to face off against former WBA heavyweight champion Lucas Browne in a 12-round bout. The fight is expected to take place in April 2021.

The fight will be Usyk’s first foray into the heavyweight division, and it could potentially set up a unification bout with current WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. However, it appears that Fury is demanding too much money for the fight, and the unification bout may not happen.

Usyk is no stranger to big fights, having faced off against the likes of Tony Bellew, Murat Gassiev, and Mairis Briedis. He is also a former Olympic gold medalist, having won gold at the 2012 London Olympics in the heavyweight division.

Usyk is one of the most exciting fighters in the sport today, and his move to the heavyweight division could potentially open up a whole new world of possibilities. He is a fighter who is not afraid to take risks, and his move to the heavyweight division could potentially lead to some of the biggest fights in boxing history.

Only time will tell if Usyk will be able to make the jump to the heavyweight division and become a champion there as well. But one thing is for sure, Usyk is a fighter who is always looking to challenge himself and take on the best in the world.
