The best boxer in the world is Oleksandr Usyk. That is what Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, who chose the heavyweight from Ukraine this week, claims. Hennessy provided Alvarez with a speaking opportunity with Insider prior to his Saturday fight with Gennady Golovkin. Morning Brew is read by more than 3 million people; you should too! LAST NV When Insider asked Mexican boxer Saul “Canelo” Alvarez who he thought was the finest in boxing outside himself, he responded that Oleksandr Usyk was the best boxer in the world.
Gennady Golovkin, an old foe, will face off against Alvarez on Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas during a Matchroom on DAZN event.
It will be Canelo’s first fight since a shocking defeat to Dimitry Bivol, who displayed excellent boxing technique in the same venue earlier this summer to secure one of the year’s greatest victories by outpointing Alvarez with a confounding style of feints, triple jabs, and superior ring craft.
The outcome upended many lists of the top men’s boxers, according to Insider, propelling sportsmen like Usyk to the top spot, placing Bivol in the top 10, and knocking Alvarez down to No. 5.
According to Canelo, USYK is the best because of his skills.
