On the eve of the fight with Tyson Fury, Ukrainian super heavyweight Oleksandr Usyk told how long his boxing career will last. Radio Maxim tells the details.

The 37-year-old boxer admitted that regardless of the outcome of the fight with Fury, he will continue boxing for about three more years. This is reported by Boxing Scene.

On the eve of the match, the rivals held a final press conference, which appeared to be rather reserved on the part of both boxers. In particular, Fury, who usually talks a lot, limited himself to a short speech.

Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk was more verbose in BoxingScene's commentary. In particular, the undefeated boxer told when he plans to end his career, as well as whether he is affected by moral pressure from the British.

I'm going to keep boxing. Maybe up to three years. My motivation to fight is discipline, family and fans. I appreciate the support of the people and Ukrainian soldiers. This is my motivation. Thanks to good work, we are capable of more. My greatest victory is yet to come. This will happen when my soul is taken to heaven, he said.

Also during the conference, Oleksandr said that he feels good. This fight is a big event for him, his family and the whole country. That's why the boxer can't wait for it to start.

He talks a lot, but it doesn't matter to me. Talk doesn't work against me. I clearly understand that Tyson will be different with me in the ring than with Ngannou. But I am focused only on my boxing. I respect Tyson Fury, I respect every opponent. If he says bad words to me, it's his problem, not mine, Usyk explained his position regarding the moral pressure from rival Tyson Fury.
