Boxing Court: “I’m confident that Victor will be a world champion and that he will even outperform Usyk,” Victor Faust of Ukraine has been tipped to challenge Britain’s world champions – watch Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk.
According to promoter Erol Ceylan, Victor Faust can “outshine” Oleksandr Usyk by becoming Ukraine’s strongest threat to Britain’s world heavyweight champions.
On Saturday, September 25, Usyk will face Anthony Joshua for the WBA, IBF, and WBO belts at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
On the undercard of Tyson Fury’s third WBC title fight against Deontay Wilder on October 9, Faust can make his claim as a dangerous new challenger.
“For Victor, it is a great opportunity to present himself to a global audience on a major stage,” said Faust’s manager, Erol Ceylan.
“I am confident that the fans will adore him and his boxing style.”
The undefeated 29-year-old paid a visit to Usyk’s training camp recently, where the former undisputed cruiserweight champion sparred in preparation for his upcoming fight with Joshua.
With a height of 6′ 5′′, Faust is naturally taller than Usyk, and he has also trained with Wladimir Klitschko.
Faust, who won gold at the 2017 European Championships, finished his amateur career soon after defeating Clemente Russo, who was in the other corner when Usyk won Olympic gold in London 2012.
“I’m confident Victor will be a world champion and will even outshine Usyk,” Ceylan said.
Faust is undefeated in seven fights, including five knockouts, before his next bout on the Fury versus Wilder 3 card against American Mike Marshall.
At the T-Mobile Arena, he’ll be joined by a trio of undefeated opponents, including Jared Anderson, Efe Ajagba, and Frank Sanchez, who will be putting their pristine records on the line.
