Oleksandr Usyk visits Chicago Bulls practice

Ukrainian boxing phenomenon Oleksandr Usyk (16-0, 12 KO) is about to make a heavyweight debut in Chicago this weekend but he found time for a short cultural event. 

The boxer arrived to Chicago and visited the practice of the local “Chicago Bulls” basketball team. Oleksandr had a chance to talk to the team members and take some photos that you can see below. (Photo by Ed Mulholland) 

Usyk’s opponent for his heavyweight debut is 38-year-old vet Chazz Witherspoon from the USA. Initially, his opponent was supposed to be Carlos Takam but Takam turned it down and was replaced by Tyrone Spong who was later replaced by Witherspoon after testing positive.
