Oleksandr Usyk

Usyk’s Coach Reveals the Ukrainian’s Brutal Training Sessions Ahead of Joshua Rematch

Ahead of his rematch with Anthony Joshua, Oleksandr Usyk’s trainer has revealed the boxer almost drowned due to the brutal nature of his training routine.

He went on to describe the extreme training routine that Usyk has employed to put him perfect condition for the bout in Saudi Arabia.

It would be recalled that Usyk beat Joshua by unanimous decision the last time the pair squared off against each other.

“When I think about Oleksandr Usyk, I am so proud to represent him,” Egis Klimas, Usyk’s trainer, stated.

“I can tell you, I’ve never seen anybody in 45 degree heat ride a bicycle for 100 kilometers.

“I’ve never seen anybody swimming the day before the press conference in London for 1 kilometer in the pool for five hours.

“I never seen anybody holding his breath under water for four minutes and 40 seconds, almost passing out.

“When I asked him, ‘what’s wrong with you?’ he said, ‘I know I have a trainer behind me, he’s not going to let me drown, he’s going to pull me out’.”

Joshua has also been training hard for the rematch, with the British boxer keen on making up for his loss.

The fight will take place today, Saturday, August 20, in Jeddah.
