Usyk entirely dominated and won by the judges’ scores (117-112, 116-112, 115-113). Unstoppable! 19 victories, 0 defeats in his career record.

Usyk has now gathered most of the titles in the heavyweight category. They are again in the Ukrainian hands after brothers Klitschko were reigning champions in 2004-2015.
